The most interesting information is a delay of the signal propagation due to the water vapor content - the Slant Wet Delay (SWD). The inverse modeling technique being concern here is the tomography. It is the transformation of the slant integrated observation of state of the atmosphere (SWD), to the three dimensional distribution of the water vapor. Over past six years the studies on GNSS tomography were performed in the Wroclaw University of Environmental and Life Sciences on the GNSS tomography. Since 2008 the new national permanent GNSS network ASG-EUPOS (about 130 GNSS reference stations) has been established in Poland (www.asgeupos.pl). This paper presents the issues of the Near Real Time troposphere model construction, characteristic of GNSS and meteorological data and the building of the required IT infrastructure.}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS), Information Technology (IT), Meteorology, GNSS Meteorology, Atmosphere Model, Slant Wet Delay (SWD), Integrated Water Vapor (IWV), Meteorological Data} }
