Due to rapid expansion of stations and the increased reliance on Real Time services in the market, SmartNet North America has made the decision to change it RINEX Data Retention Policy.
As of April 20, 2016, SmartNet North America will move away from retaining RINEX data for 90 days, to retaining RINEX data for 45 days. We will however continue to retain 30 second RINEX data for 5+ years to allow for long term monitoring, velocity modelling, and integrity processes on all stations.
This decision was not made in a vacuum. We looked at the usage and download history of the RINEX data and verified that over 95% of all downloads occur in the first 30 days of it being available.
We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause some of our users, but to optimize the network for all of our users this was the proper course of action to take.
