“Application Report for State Key Laboratory of Surveying, Mapping and Geographic Information Science” passed expert evaluation

On July 27th, the Appraisal meeting for “Application Report for State Key Laboratory of Surveying, Mapping and Geographic Information Science” , organized by the National Administration of Surveying, Mapping and Geoinformation (NASMG) was held in Beijing. The experts listened to the report. Four academicians (including Li Deren, Xu Houze, Gong Jianya and Li Jiancheng) and other experts from the National RS Center of China, National Natural Science Foundation of China, State Key Laboratory of Resources and Environmental Information System, State Key Laboratory of Information Engineering in SM and RS, State Key Laboratory of RS Science, State Key Laboratory of Geodesy and Earth’s Dynamics attended the meeting. Dep. Dir-Gen. of NASMG Li Pengde attended the meeting and made a speech. Dir. of Science Technology and International Cooperation Dep. Li Yongchun, his Deputy Yan Qin also attended the meeting. Moreover, all the members of the leading committee, working group and writing group attended the meeting too.
At the meeting, Pres. of CASM Zhang Jixian introduced the application report of proposed State Key Laboratory and the introduction is composed of eight aspects: Objectives, Meanings, Advances, Trends, Directions, Contents, Basics, Conditions. The report was inquired and discussed by the attending experts and the following suggestions and conclusions are acquired: The construction of the Laboratory has strategic significance for transformation and updating of the sci-tech development of SMG, it will powerfully prompt the sci-tech and industrial development of SMG science; The construction of the Laboratory is based not only on the advances of the SMG science, but also significant strategic demands of our nation, which has significant meanings and clear goals; the Laboratory will take “perception, processing, analysis and service” as the research framework, focus on four main directions of SMG science and the research directions and their contents are scientifically reasonable, which accords with the developing trends of SMG science; There are rich working basis, preferable research conditions and high-level research groups in the supporting institution and the supporting institution is capable to build a State Key Laboratory.
Li Pengde pointed out that, the supporting institution should attach importance to the opinions proposed by the experts, and improve the application report and submit it to the Ministry of Science and Technology (MST) as soon as possible. He also emphasized that, the construction of the State Key Laboratory should meet the strategic demands of economic construction, social development, national security, should face to the development of public welfare undertakings and newly emerging industry associated with SMG, should aim at the international frontiers, should make a deep research on the new theories, new methods, new equipments and new criterions under the background of big data and globalization era, should build an open, shared, interacted and innovative research network for geoinformation, should strengthen the talent cultivation, which will make the State Key Laboratory as a scientific research center, academic communication center, new technology research and developing base and a talent cultivation base.
All of the attending experts approved the “Application Report of State Key Laboratory of Surveying, Mapping and Geoinformation Science”, and they also suggested that it should be applied to the MST for approval as soon as possible, which will accelerate the scientific research and prompt the overall developing level of SMG.
