Domes number request
For a new station, a DOMES number request should be directed
to the IERS TRF section
by filling in
a DOMES INFORMATION FORM (DIF) available HERE
or by filling in
and submitting it automatically HERE
from the web site.
The DOMES numbers are assigned by the IERS ITRS Product Center, hosted by the Geodesy Research Laboratory (LAREG), IGN France.
Neighboring points are clustered into a site. The current rule
is that all points which could be linked by a co-location
survey (up to 30 km) should be included into a single site
of the IERS network having a single DOMES site number.
