Management and Utilization of National Control Points for Efficiency of Survey

Outline of Management and Utilization of National Control Points for Efficiency of Survey

PREFACE

In many developing countries, there are problems that hinder the utilization of geospatial information, such as the difference between positions shown on the map and the actual position, or the differences between planimetric features among different maps. Major causes include the fact that national control points providing accurate reference positions are not maintained, or that there is not enough national control points.
Recently, with the widespread use of measurement devices utilizing positioning satellites, the continuous GNSS observation system is increasingly being introduced throughout the world for national control points. By using this system, it is possible to promote the utilization of geospatial information.
Thus, the Geospatial Information Authority of Japan, which has nearly 20 years of experience in operating the continuous GNSS observation system, planned this training course with the aim to develop human resources who can acquire the method of the space-based PNT (positioning, navigation and timing), understand the utilization of the continuous GNSS observation system in Japan, and manage national control points according to the situation in each country and develop a method therefor.
 

COURSE OBJECTIVE

This training course intends to enable the NMOs to plan measures to improve the management efficiency and utilization of national control points themselves.
For this, the training course requires the Participants to make a proposal on improvement measures as their assignments, based on the knowledge obtained through the lectures, including the mechanism and system of the government’s administration on survey issues in Japan, as well as the operational method of the continuous GNSS observation system and the case examples of the utilization of data thereof.

Participants are expected to achieve the following outputs;
 
  1. Develop an understanding on the government’s administration on survey issues and the legislative framework in Japan.
  2. Survey methods utilizing positioning satellites, and those utilizing the continuous GNSS observation system can be explained.
  3. Method to develop geospatial information utilizing the continuous GNSS observation system can be explained.
  4. Method to introduce and utilize the world geodetic system can be explained.
  5. Based on the understanding on the situation of national control point management and the situation of infrastructure development in each country, a proposal on adequate control point management and measures on utilization can be proposed.

NUMBER OF PARTICIPANTS
