Abstract. The main purpose of this study is to investigate the possibilities of monitoring crustal movement, during collective evaluation of first- and second-order GPS densification networks. The new criteria, which are independent from the network datum, are widely used for the evaluation and quality processing of geodetic networks. In this study, the values of detectable minimum displacement for a real GPS network are investigated as well as how sensitivity levels are affected by additional datum conditions, which are added to the adjustment model.
