The Governance Accountability Project (GAP) for Bosnia and Herzegovina has purchased 46 Ashtech ProMark 3 RTK GPS receivers to help cadastre offices in 23 municipalities to support municipal capital improvement projects and simplify procedures for urban construction and land use administration. This is part of the effort of GAP to build the capacity of Bosnian municipalities to better serve their citizens as Bosnia develops into a mature, representative democracy and the role of local governments and municipalities grows in importance. GAP is supported by US Agency for International Development (USAID), the Swedish International Development Cooperative Agency (SIDA) and the Embassy of The Netherlands.
Ashtech ProMark 3 RTK GPS receivers meet the technical requirements of the Federal Geodetic Authority for use in land administration. In addition, GAP required a brand name device with local support, local language interface, and on-site training in every municipality with real data problems.
