The IVS contribution for ITRF2014 consists of a set of SINEX files with combined datum free normal equations. The normal equations contain station coordinates and earth orientation parameters and are combined using contributions of 9 IVS Analysis Centers.

A data DOI has been assigned to the IVS combined contribution to ITRF2014. Referencing the dataset includes a direct appreciation for the work involved in such a data acquisition effort.

For the IVS contribution to ITRF2014, this appreciation extends to the whole chain of data acquisition: VLBI stations, Correlators, Data Centers, operational Data Analysis Centers, and Combination Centers.
