Mongolian leveling /height/ network was established in 1930s by Russian red army, which connected to Russian 1st class height network through 6 lines. Mongolian height system is the Kronstadt datum, i.e. tied to the Baltic Sea level through the Russian leveling network. The Mongolian Gravimetric Geoid model MGGM10 produced implementing airborne gravity project in 2004–2005. It based on the EGM96 reference model and improved surface gravity and terrain data. The Mongolian Geoid height model was produced twice in 2010 and in 2014 fitting to gravimetric geoid model MGGM10 using 84 points and 2nd class leveling network’s 18 node points respectively. The Mongolian final geoid height model GEOID14 produced with 7 cm RMS, which could replace huge geometric leveling work in the field. This paper will cover the development of the Mongolian Geoid height modelGE-OID14 and it’s applications.
