Abstract: This paper deals with the optimal design of GPS geodynamic geodetic networks. A simple strike-slip fault-model is used to investigate the design of networks and to decide where to place geodetic stations in order to satisfy the accuracy of fault-model parameter estimates, which sites should be selected from the initial mass of permissible points which are bounded by topography and other conditions.
