Larson, Kristine
Converts the standard GPS data format (RINEX) into useable data, i.e. it computes the GPS orbits and calculates satellite azimuth and elevation angle, and Signal to Noise Ratio data from GPS sensors. It does not create soil moisture or snow depth by itself, but it will save a non-GPS expert a lot of time.
