<p><strong>Abstract.</strong> The GPS water vapour tomography is a new technique which provides spatially resolved water vapour distributions in the atmosphere under all weather conditions. This work investigates the information contained in a given set of GPS signals as a precondition to an optimal tomographic reconstruction. The spatial distribution of the geometric intersection points between different ray paths is used to estimate the information density. Different distributions of intersection points obtained from hypothetical GPS networks with varying densities of GPS stations are compared with respect to the horizontal and vertical resolution of a subsequent tomographic reconstruction. As a result some minimum requirements for continuously operating extensive GPS networks for meteorological applications are given.</p>
