VIGAC2017 is a hybrid geoid model for Vietnam, computed by combining the VIGAC2014 model and GNSS/levelling data. The VIGAC2014 model was computed by adding a constant of 86 cm to the EGM2008 quasi-geoid heights, so that the quasi-geoid height at the Hon Dau tide gauge station was equal to zero. The transformation from VIGAC2014 to VIGAC2017 consists in a 7-parameter transformation from the ITRF global reference system (WGS84 reference ellipsoid) to the VN2000-3D national reference system. The parameters were determined by fitting 164 GNSS/levelling points. The estimated accuracy of the VIGAC2017 model is at the level of 6.2 cm.
