Abstract. A dynamic datum denotes a coordinate datum in real-time linked with the International Terrestrial Reference Frame (ITRF) in order to provide a dynamic ITRF-like datum to the users. The ITRF is dynamic and updating every few years as its stations’ coordinates consider the motion of earth’s tectonic plate and other deformations. This paper is an effort to review the implementation of dynamic geocentric datum techniques from a few countries. An overview of dynamic geocentric datum implements Malaysia, Australia, New Zealand, Uzbekistan, Israel and Brunei will be summarized to support the future application. Thus, a review consists of a type of datum; datum parameters, reference frame and epoch will be discussed and outlined. This initiative is the significance for the advancement of the future datum development.
