GIS Development and Singapore Land Authority announced that Chinese Academy of Survey and Mapping (China), National Mapping and Resource Information Authority (Philippines), JUPEM (Malaysia) and Survey Department (Brunei Darussalam) have extended their support for Map Asia 2009.

Map Asia 2009 – the 8th Annual Asian Conference & Exhibition on Geospatial Information, Technology and Applications, is scheduled to be held from 18 – 20 August at Suntec Singapore International Convention & Exhibition Centre, Singapore.

With the theme “Connecting Geospatial Communities- Creating New Dimensions” the conference will highlight the new dimensions that geospatial tools like Geographic Information Systems have created, or can create, for businesses and governments in their strategic planning and business operations.

“I am extremely glad to receive such an overwhelming support from these renowned organisations for Map Asia 2009 as ‘Supporting Organisations’, commented Sanjay Kumar, Chief Executive Officer, GIS Development.

“It is really rejuvenating and motivating for us to have support of agencies from key nations of East & South East Asia. The delegates in Map Asia 2009 will have the opportunity to interact with the members of these key surveying and mapping agencies and, I believe, this will provide them the insight on the status of usage of geospatial technology in the region. With the international participation, Map Asia 2009 provides a platform for these organisations to get updated with the latest of the developments taking place in other parts of the world,” he added.
