Symposium on Development of Frontier Technologies for Science of Surveying and Mapping held at BUCEA

On March 12, 2023, the Symposium on Development of Frontier Technologies for Science of Surveying and Mapping was jointly sponsored by the Chinese Society for Geodesy Photogrammetry and Cartography (CSGPC) and the Chinese National Committee for IUGG (CNC-IUGG) in Beijing, with the School of Geomatics and Urban Spatial Informatics of BUCEA as the co-organizer. The purpose is to boost productivity in surveying and mapping and promote high-quality development of the digital economy. Nearly 20 academicians from the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), the Chinese Academy of Engineering, and the International Eurasian Academy of Sciences (IEAS) attended the symposium, including CHEN Junyong, LI Deren, LIU Jingnan, WANG Jiayao, YANG Yuanxi, GONG Jianya, GUO Huadong, ZHOU Chenghu, GUO Renzhong, XIA Jun, CHEN Jun, SUN Heping, etc. In addition, more than 290 experts from 42 higher education institutions and 31 scientific research institutions joined the opening ceremony and relevant activities. These institutions include the CSGPC Specialized Committee on Geodetic Survey and Navigation, the Chinese National Committee of IAG, the Chinese Academy of Surveying and Mapping, Chang’an University, Information Engineering University, Tongji University, Wuhan University, Central South University, Liaoning Technical University, China University of Mining and Technology, Shandong University of Science and Technology, the Innovation Academy for Precision Measurement Science and Technology of CAS, the Aerospace Information Research Institute of CAS, and Geodetic Data Processing Centre of the Ministry of Natural Resources.
