Sino-Britain Joint Research Center of Geospatial Information Inaugurated

On 13th Dec. 2011, Sino-Britain Joint Research Center of Geospatial Information (JRCGI) was inaugurated in Chinese Innovative Base of S&M, which is jointly established by CASM and Nottingham University of Britain(NUB). Li Pengde Dep. Dir. Gen. NASMG, Chen Linhao, Dep. Dir. Dep. of International Cooperation, Ministry of Science and Technology(MST), Li Deren, Academician of CAS and CAE, Zhang Jixian, Pres. of CASM, and Chris Rudd, Vice pres. NUB jointly inaugurated the center.
At the inaugural ceremony, Vice min. Ministry of Land and Resources (MLR) and Dir. Gen. of NASMG Xu Deming specially sent a congratulatory letter and pointed out: The strong cooperation between CASM and NUB and establishment of Sino-Britain JRCGI are significant for pushing the deep cooperation and exchange of SM&GI of China and Britain, and jointly promoting the technology and service level of SM&GI of China and Britain. Xu sincerely hopes both parties take the establishment as a great chance, develop for the future, operate the center to be a distinguishing, high-level, influential, world-class international joint research center and realize the common development.
At the inaugural ceremony, Li Pengde and Chen Linhao respectively represented NASMG and MST for congratulations, and said they will greatly support the development of the center, Academician Li Deren expressed congratulations for the establishment of the center, and hoped the center will make important progress in navigation positioning and service based on location, photogrammetry and RS, cartography and GIS technology and commercialization of GI and so on. Zhang Jixian introduced the duty orientation and organization structure and other aspects of the center. The center will combine the advantages of China and Britain to jointly carry out the basic research and application research related to GI, especially those that can solve the key sciences and frontier issues faced by China and Britain, give play to world incubation center, and realize the effective combination of industry and study and research of Sci&Tech achievements of China and Britain. Chris Rudd introduced the condition of NUB, recalled the cooperative history in SM&GI, and presented great hope for the development of the center.
The center is jointly established by CASM and NUB and Pres. of CASM, Zhang Jixian acts as the director of the center. As the first international joint-research center of NASMG, Sino-Britain JRCGI will combine the advantages of China and Britain, jointly carry out the basic and application research related to GI, especially those that can solve the key science and frontier issues faced by China and Britain, promote the new progress in navigation positioning and service based on location, photogrammetry and RS, cartography and GIS, technology and commercialization of GI, and so on. At present, the research center is devoted to the serial research in precision agriculture, based on 3S technology, location-based service (LBS) and so on, and promote the wide application of SM&GI technology in precision agriculture and other industries.
The establishment of Sino-Britain JRCGI is significant to push the deep cooperation and exchange of SM&GI of China and Britain, and jointly promote the technology and service level of SM&GI of two counties. China and Britain will adhere to the strategic direction of “Construct digital China, Monitor national geographic condition, Develop and strengthen industry, Built power country of S&M, accelerate to implement the strategy of SM&GI “Going out”, make Sino-Britain JRCGI be the first-class international joint research center in the world, and make great contributions to the development of SM&GI of China and Britain.
Introduction of cooperation background:
In 2004, CASM signed a MOU with Nottingham University (NU) and started long-term cooperation research.
In 2006, the both parties jointly applied for and obtained the Galileo satellite positioning under the 6th EU Framework Plan Research Project and other program aids, relating to LBS, EGNOS and terminal positioning system of integrated GPS/Galileo.
In 2008, the both parties jointly applied for Sino-Britain Innovation Fund Project of “High-sensitivity Low-cost GPS Receiver High-accuracy Positioning Prototype Development”, which was rated as the excellent project by Britain in 2009 and satisfactorily passed the acceptance inspection by the Dep. of International Cooperation the MST in Dec. 2010, which is a typical example of Sino-Britain cooperation. The Seminar of Global Navigating Satellite System and Geographic Space was held in Wuhan In 2008, in which the discussion with far-reaching significance was carried out in the new progress of global navigating satellite system and GI in China and Britain, the market and application of global navigating satellite system, the strategy and education of S&M, and the applications of global navigating satellite system in monitoring for geological disaster. In 2008, the both parties jointly applied for Sino-Britain Innovation Fund Project of “High-sensitivity Low-cost GPS Receiver High-accuracy Positioning Prototype Development ” which was rated as the excellent project by Britain in 2009, the project satisfactorily passed the acceptance inspection by the Dep. of International Cooperation, MST in Dec. 2010, the obtained research achievements with very rich market value, and the technological transfer is now being carried out actively, which is a typical example of Sino-Britain cooperation.
In 2009, NASMG and NUB signed strategic cooperation MOU, jointly established oversea high-end talent training center of SM&GI of China, and 3 training classes was successfully held in 2009, 2010, 2011, which constructs a high-level platform of exchange for Sino-Britain S&M entrepreneurs, and marks a new cooperative start of Sino-Britain SM&GI.
In June 2011, CASM and NUB officially signed the MOU of joint establishing international joint research center, which pushed the cooperation to a new level.
