A network in the local scale geodynamics test area "SIMEIZ—KATSIVELI" was designed and GPS observational campaign was conducted. The preprocessing with the purpose to determine the precision, consistency, and cycle slips of GPS data was performed by the BERNESE version 3.5 GPS software (Astronomical Institute, University of Berne. In the final adjustment the geocentric coordinates of GPS points were estimated with a precision of 1—3 mm. Based on the eccenters from GPS markers to the reference points of two SLR stations and VLBI antenna, the geocentric coordinates derived by three different techniques — GPS, SLR, and VLBI — were compared. The possible error of equipment calibration of SLR stations in Simeiz (12337S003) and in Katsiveli (12337S006) is concluded.

5. The data are obtained from S. Bolotin's results of processing the VLBI campaign (CRIMEA—DSS65—MATERA—MEDICINA — ONSALA60—WETTZELL) by the original secondary VLBI data processing program STEEL BREEZE ver. 1.01.
