More and more of the Earth’s active plate boundaries are instrumented with continuous Global Positioning System (cGPS) networks that provide both the earthquake research and response communities with the opportunity to observe coseismic surface deformation in much greater detail and rapidity than was possible a decade ago. These measurements of 3D displacements with high temporal resolution are critical for understanding the kinematics and dynamics of events and are complementary to seismic acceleration observations and high spatial resolution Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar observations. In addition, low‐latency GPS has been tested for use in rapid hazard assessment (e.g., Blewitt et al.,...
