The main objectives of Commission 1 include:

  • Definition, establishment, maintenance and improvement of the geodetic reference frames;
  • Advanced terrestrial and space observation technique development for the above purposes.
  • International collaboration for the definition and deployment of networks of terrestrially-based space geodetic observatories.
  • Theory and coordination of astrometric observation for reference frame purposes.
  • Collaboration with space geodesy/reference frame related international services, agencies and organizations.
  • Promote the definition and establishment of vertical reference systems at global level, considering the advances in the regional sub-commissions.
  • Work to maintain a reference frame that is valuable for global change studies.
