Ground control point network - Svartisen area, northern Norway

A new Ground Control Point network was established at Svartisen in order to improve the quality of the existing geodetic network. 26 points, many of them part of the existing geodetic network established by the Norwegian Mapping Authority, were measured using differential GPS.

Additional points measured were mainly around the glaciers Engabreen and Svartisheibreen and most of them had been used previously in mapping work by NVE. The measurements were performed by NVE personnel, and the calculations were done by NVE and NOVOSAT.
