The IAG's GGOS (Global Geodetic Observing System) project will be introduced and its impact on the geodesy of Japan and future prospects will be discussed. GGOS aims to provide a fundamental frame of reference with global geodetic observations by ground- and space-based techniques, and to address global problems and societal needs. In Japan, GGOS working group was established in 2013 to discuss Japan's active contribution to GGOS and construction of GGOS Core Sites etc. by strengthening inter-organizational collaboration and communication.
