GGOS Japan, formerly known as GGOS Working Group of Japan, was established in 2013 to strengthen the collaboration among the space-geodesy-related agencies in Japan. Its core members consist of a chair, a secretary, a lead of the outreach working group, a lead of the DOI working group and representatives of five core techniques: VLBI, SLR, GNSS, DORIS and gravity. It is largely supported by tens of people in Japan and also by its parent entity, IAG subcommittee in Japan.

It has been positioned in GGOS as the first GGOS Affiliate since 2017 and we strived to get connected to international organizations.

This presentation will cover our achievement such as assembling our site list, hosting various domestic/international meetings, planning a special issue in a domestic journal, producing its leaflet and website. GGOS Japan also provides online and offline forums for timely issues, such as assigning Data DOI to geodetic dataset, planning local tie for ITRF2020, etc.
