Specialists from the State Authority for Geospatial Information from the sectors of Remote Sensing, Cartography and the Sector of Geoinformation Standards participated in a two-week training in the framework of the project with the Japan International Cooperation Agency JICA on 13-27.10.2018 in Tokyo, Japan.

Developing training in an institution and private company with tasks and responsibilities similar to those of ASIG offered the opportunity to exchange experience not only on the technical and professional side, but also on organizational and managerial skills by seeing and studying the way they are planned and realized working processes from relevant sectors operating in the field of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing.

The training program provided basic knowledge and experience exchange in the field of photogrammetry and remote sensing technology as well as the most modern methods in use in Japan, the way of managing, creating, updating and maintaining cartographic information according to the latest trends.

The knowledge and experience gained from this training greatly help in improving the work methodology, solving some problems related to the lack of experience in the field of photogrammetry and providing a good support base for the creation, maintenance, updating of the basic mapping .
