The more than 15-year-old ICGEM is one of the five services coordinated by the International Gravity Field Service (IGFS) of the International Association of Geodesy (IAG). It is hosted by GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences in Potsdam, Germany. The aim of the ICGEM service is to provide the scientific community with a state-of-the-art archive of static and time variable global gravity field models of the Earth in a standardized format with a possibility to assign DOI number. Furthermore, ICGEM contains an interactive calculation and visualization service of gravity field functionals. Development and maintenance of such a unique platform is crucial for the scientific community in geodesy, geophysics, oceanography and climatology and has a positive impact in governmental institutions and industrial practice. This poster covers the maintenance, recently established new features and future plans of the ICGEM Service. New features include the calculation of gravity field functionals at a list of user-defined distributed points and new topographic gravity field models, whereas the future plans aim to meet the needs of the scientific community. As an add-on, ICGEM provides also access to the gravity field models of some other celestial bodies (Mars, Venus, and Earth’s moon).

    This poster gives a detailed overview about the features of the ICGEM data base incl. its calculation service at GFZ Potsdam (Germany), a service within the frameworks of International Association of Geodesy (IAG) and International Gravity Field Service (IGFS). The content of this poster is not new, we presented a very similar poster already one year ago here at EGU. Nevertheless, there are some new features which should be clearly observably. Please check-out the poster. In contrast to a printed poster mounted on a wall here the given links to the various pages and services of ICGEM are accessible very easily by clicking. In case of questions we recommend to contact via email to icgem@gfz-potsdam.de
