GPS is already a main method of positioning measurement in geodesy and is applied widely in many fields. In order to maintain and ensure the accuracy of positioning, an accurate and efficient system for calibrating the GPS receivers must be established. A highly accurate GPS calibration network, tied to the ITRF coordinates of IGS stations, can be effectively used to evaluate the performance of GPS receivers. This study addresses the feasibility of establishing a system for calibrating GPS receivers and the system's traceability in metrology. Uncertainties of the GPS calibration networks were established and maintained by NML (National Measurement Laboratory, Taiwan). Furthermore, the networks are evaluated based on the method suggested by the ISO (International Organization for Standardization). The uncertainties of NML network coordinates are obtained and used as a basis for calibration. The results of the slope distances between pillars measured by the GPS processing units and the precise EDM units are discussed. Analytical results indicate that the 3D expanded uncertainty of the main station TNML of the network in the ITRF system is around 33.2 mm at the 95% confidence level. The 3D expanded uncertainties of the calibration points of the ultra-short distance network and the short distance network are evaluated to be about 2.2 mm and 3.4 mm, respectively in relation to the main station TNML at the 95% confidence level. The precision of the NML network coordinates suffices to calibrate the geodetic and navigational GPS receivers of regional users and is available through the Internet.
