Presently, the permanent GPS network in Iceland consists of total 17 stations (19 including sites where there are two stations (hofn and reyk)). The first station was installed by BKG in Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland, in 1995. This is an IGS station widely used by the GPS community.
The first ISGPS (Icelandic GPS) station was installed March 1999 at this site here, VOGS. The ISGPS network is a cooperation between a few institutions in Iceland and France. It's main goal is to monitor crustal deformation associated with earthquakes and volcanic activity. Hence the spatial distribution of stations.
The blue dot is a start of an independent permanent network operated by the National Land Survey of Iceland (LMI).
