Thais Help Bhutan with Satellite Imagery and other International GIS News

Bhutan will have satellite images of development facilities in each distric by year's end thanks to a three year project of its National Environment Commission (NEC). The Thailand minister of science and technology, Dr Khunying Kalaya Sophonpanich, visited in September 2009 to begin a technology relationship with Bhutan. The Thai government is providing US 9M for this project; it's not clear what the source of the imagery will be.


Serbia's Minister of Environment, Mining and Spatial Planning Oliver Dulic will attend the presentation of a project to form a single geospatial data system. The project is a joint effort of the country and France worth €16 million.


India's Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company Limited (MSEDCL) is mapping its assets. i suspect the company, rather than the press, know what's going on.

The network, called Restructured Accelerated Power Development and Reference Programme (RAPDRP), involves putting its entire electricity distribution network on a Global Informatics System (GIS) — a derivative of the GPS — on a single screen.
