aeroReadIERSData

File containing current International Astronomical Union (IAU) 2000A Earth orientation data

Syntax

file=aeroReadIERSData(foldername)
file=aeroReadIERSData(foldername,'url',urladdress)

Description

example

file=aeroReadIERSData(foldername) creates a MAT-file, file, based on IAU 2000A Earth orientation data from the International Earth Rotation and Reference Systems Service (IERS). It saves the file to foldername. file name has the format aeroiersdataYYYYMMDD.mat, where:

  • YYYY - Year

  • MM - Month

  • DD - Day

file=aeroReadIERSData(foldername,'url',urladdress) creates the MAT-file based on Earth orientation data from a specific website or data file.

Examples

collapse all

Create the Earth orientation data file for the current day, in the current folder, using data from the default website http://maia.usno.navy.mil/ser7/finals2000A.data.

aeroReadIERSData(pwd)

Create the Earth orientation file for the current day, in the current folder, using data from the alternate website https://datacenter.iers.org/data/latestVersion/10_FINALS.DATA_IAU2000_V2013_0110.txt.

aeroReadIERSData(pwd,'url','https://datacenter.iers.org/data/latestVersion/10_FINALS.DATA_IAU2000_V2013_0110.txt')

Create the Earth orientation file for the current day, in the current folder, using data from a specified file file:///C:\Documents\final2000A.data.

aeroReadIERSData(pwd,'url','file:///C:\Documents\finals2000A.data')
