Abstract: The Institute of Geological and Nuclear Sciences (GNS) has collected Global Positioning System (GPS) data since 1992 at various geodetic sites in the Arthur's Pass region, for the purpose of studying ongoing tectonic deformation. See Williams , Pearson et al. , Arnadottir et al. , and Beavan [1995,1997]. During a three week period over January 2000 the ''AP2000'' campaign repeated observations at the majority of stations in the Christchurch-Hokitika network for the third time. This report documents the survey, describing the logistics of the campaign and identifying the station occupied and the data collected. The observations are part of a joint project between the Institute of Geological and Nuclear Sciences (GNS) and Otago University Survey Department (OUSD). (auth)
