Description:
GGM06 is a gravimetric geoid model for Mexico. It is computed by using a terrestrial gravity database coming from INEGI, DMA and PEMEXA, and marine gravity anomalies derived from Topex/Poseidon altimetry. The geoid determination is based on the Stokes-Helmert technique with the software provided by the University of New Brunswick (UNB).
