Just received the notification today that the NGS/CORS base stations have
been taken offline as part of the government shutdown. If you are
collecting any data with GPS, you will be unable to differentially collect
via the NGS/CORS networks. This includes the DOT base station networks in
most states as well as any federally operated stations. Contact the GPS
vendor for assistance on using an alternative network, if available in your

If you are making any plans to use differential GPS for the fall editathon,
be aware that you will need an alternate network if the federal government
is still shut down.
