The newest positioning and monitoring station for coastal Louisiana has seen the completion of installation- at Cypremort State Park, located in the central coast of Louisiana.

Through a five state- Gulf Wide- initiative lead by the University of Southern Mississippi (funded by NOAA Grant Funding), a multi year effort is seeing the planning, design and installation of new GPS (GNSS) based CORS Stations across the entire Gulf Coast. Combined with resources such as the Real Time GPS Network (RTN) by the Louisiana State University Center for GeoInformatics, very accurate positioning (in real time) are available for coastal restoration projects, coastal protection projects, infrastructure and community and industrial projects and programs.

Special Thanks and Appreciation goes to the Louisiana State Parks, Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism- for their support and collaboration.

Thanks to the Texas A&M CBI for their work and the efforts and installation of this station with Louisiana State University C4G.

Planning for a new GPS CORS Station is now underway for South Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana.
