The United Nations Committee of Experts on Global Geospatial Information Management (UN-GGIM) decided on its third session held on July 2013 to submit draft resolution to the United Nation General Assembly which promotes international cooperation for maintenance of sustainable Global Geodetic Reference Frame (GGRF), acknowledging GGRF is the essential infrastructure for accurate positional reference for social, economic and scientific activities. A Working Group was established by UN-GGIM and developed the draft resolution. The resolution will be endorsed by the General Assembly on early 2015.
Geospatial Information Authority of Japan (GSI) has been participating the WG as a member of UNCE-GGIM from the first stage of the activity and contributed to the development of the draft resolution. The GSI are also participating the activity to develop roadmap for sustainable development and maintenance of GGRF. The background and the purpose of the resolution, current activity and future plan of WG for sustainable maintenance of GGRF of will be reported.
