Abstract: A generalized no-fiducial approach has been developed to obtain global positions and velocities without fixing any individual position or velocity components. The method used can be applied to any global geodetic technique and proceeds in three general steps. First, daily solutions derived with weak constraints are combined to yield one global set of positions and velocities. Second, 14 minimal constraints are applied to remove uncertainties due to the loosely defined reference frame. Third, transformation from one reference frame to another is accomplished with a 14 parameter transformation. One year of daily FLINN solutions, each made with data from about 40 sites, have been combined to yield our best fit global model...
