Permanent Stations for Positioning (CZEPOS)
Services of the Czech GNSS Net of Permanent Stations for positioning (CZEPOS) enable to users of the GNNS (Global Navigation Satellite systems) receivers substantially improve positional accuracy in the entire territory of the Czech Republic. Administration and providing of the CZEPOS services are assured by the CZEPOS Information System that is a part of the Information System of Land Surveying and belongs to Information Systems of Public Administration.

The CZEPOS services are provided to all registered users against a fee according the current pricelist of the Land Survey Office.
According to present conception of geodetic control at the COSMC, the CZEPOS is a part of fundamental geodetic control that according Act No. 200/1994 Coll. that creates geodetic fundaments in the territory of the Czech Republic.
