The National Administration of Surveying, Mapping and Geoinformation was presented the National Mapping Organization of the Year 2012 Award in the 2013 Geospatial World Forum in Rotterdam, Netherlands, earlier this month, Song Chaozhi, deputy director of the administration, said on May 22.

The biennial Geospatial World Forum is a premier event for the global geospatial community, showcasing state-of-the-art technology and its use in the world economy.

Besides China, the national mapping organization award has been won by the surveying and mapping administrations in the UK, Canada, Switzerland and New Zealand, for their contributions to surveying and mapping.

Song said China has actively participated in the world's surveying and mapping work with a global mapping program expected to be completed this year. The program will be available to all countries.
