GPS is recognized the essential method to obtain the best result in the sphere of earth science that is setting of International Reference Frame, decision of the rotation coefficient about the earth rotation axis, detection of the crustal deformation, and observation of the diastrophism by high precision positioning except for navigation, geodetic survey and mapping. Therefore, in this study, it was attempted to build an expert service that enables non-experts to use high-precision GPS data processing. As a result, an Precise Point Positioning Solution that can maximize user convenience simply by entering the minimum required information for GPS data processing was developed, and the result of Precise Point Positioning Solution using GPS data provided by National Geographic Information Institute was compared with result of ITRF.
