Chinese Academy of Surveying and Mapping

  The Chinese Academy of Surveying and Mapping (CASM) was established in 1959 and affiliated to the State Bureau of Surveying, Mapping and Geographic Information (SBSMGI). CASM is the largest multi-disciplinary, comprehensive research institution, the class A national surveying and mapping organization, the national public good research organization of the Ministry of Science and Technology (MST) and has passed the authentications of the Quality management system ISO 9001:2008 and the Military production quality management system GJB9001B-2009.
  CASM is mainly engaged in the basic theoretical study and application in the fields of surveying, mapping, geoinformation and related disciplines. The 4 research directions are: Modern geodesy and navigation, Photogrammetry and remote sensing, Cartography and geoinformation system, Space information decision. Within CASM there are 5 research institutes of public good, 6 high-tech enterprises, 3 science technology intermediary institutions and 3 local branches, which makes the S&M and geoinformatics science technology innovation system. Relaying on CASM, some innovative platforms are built and operating, including: 2 key laboratories at the ministry and province level, 1 national engineering technology research center, 1 international joint research center at national level, 1 national field observatory and so on. Since its establishment CASM undertaken more than 500 national key scientific and engineering projects and won an outstanding praise of the world geographic space information, 27 national science technology progress awards, 3 national invention awards, more than 50 national patents, more than 150 science technology awards of ministry-provincial level, more than 200 software patents were registered and more than 50 national standards and professional regulations were stipulated. The research achievements are widely applied to the national land survey and monitoring, city planning, environment protection, emergency rescue, electronic government affairs, sea surveying, deep space exploration, national defense building etc. and formed the Scien-Tech advantage with distinguished characteristics.
  The International periodical “International Journal of Image and Data Fusion” edited by CASM enjoyed rather high prestige over the World. The other three professional periodicals “Surveying and Mapping Sciences”, “Remote Sensing Information” and “Navigation and Position Bulletin” are the kernel periodicals of Chinese science and technology and source periodicals of the quotation bank of Chinese sciences.
  CASM is the Master granting institution approved by the Ministry of Education, has the Postgraduate workstation and educated Master, Doctor candidates in cooperation with many other key universities of China. There is 1 academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering(CAE), 3 leading talents of SBSMGI, 3 middle and young aged experts with outstanding contributions, 6 candidates of “Hundred, Thousand and Ten Thousand Talents Program”, 2 winners of the China science technology praise for youth, more than 50 doctor and master tutors and near 200 doctor and master students are studying.
  CASM has established the close science exchange and cooperation with main international surveying, mapping and geographic information organizations over the world, such as: the International Association of Geodesy(IAG), International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics(IUGG), International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing(ISPRS), International Cartographic Association(ICA), Permanent Committee on GIS Infrastructure for Asia & the Pacific(PCGIAP) and many famous universities and research institutions in US, France, Great Britain, Swiss, Germany and etc.. Recent years, CASM has successfully hosted the International Symposium on Synthetic Aperture Radar and Optical Image Fusion and Applications, the IAG Symposium on Satellite Altimetry, International Symposium on Analysis of High Definition 3D Image in Difficult (Remote)Area, International Symposium on Application of Geographic Space Information in Emergency Management and Symposium on Fine Agriculture Supported by 3S Technology, International Symposium on Fusion of Image and data and etc., thus extended the international influence of the CASM.
