The Gravity field and steady-state Ocean Circulation Explorer
(GOCE) satellite developed by the European Space Agency (ESA)
was lofted into a near-Sun-synchronous, low Earth orbit by a
Rockot launcher lifting off from the Plesetsk cosmodrome in
northern Russia on March 17. 2009.

The Geodesy Group is a small, active research group in the School of Spatial
Sciences at Curtin University of Technology, Perth, Western Australia. The
theories, techniques and computer software used for the AUSGeoid98 geoid
model of Australia were developed as part of the Group's research programmes.
Geodetic Survey Division of Geomatics Canada (of Natural Resources Canada) performs
geoid research and computes high resolution geoid models for Canada.
XIII of the IAG is the International Gravity and Geoid Commission (IGGC). This
commision was created in 1999 as the merger of the International
Gravity Commission (IGC) and the International Geoid Commission (IGeC).
The current president of the IGGC is Martin Vermeer.
The International Union
of Geodesy and Geophysics is an umbrella organization with many sub-groups
tied to either the USA or the geoid or both. This page provides a

The Danish National Cadastre (KMS)
produces high resolution geoid models for Denmark, altimetrically-derived gravity anomalies,
and is a partner in the arctic gravity project.
