What is an .SSF file?

.SSF is Trimble Standard Storage Format File

An SSF file is data file used by Trimble GIS mapping software applications, which are used with GPS devices to collect field data. It contains GPS position data recorded from a Trimble device. SSF files are used to log GPS data and create custom coordinate systems.

Using GPS Pathfinder Office, SSF files may undergo differential postprocessing to improve the accuracy of recorded positions. Corrected SSF files use the .COR file extension.
