Brunei Darussalam – The Abode of Peace - is located in the heart of ASEAN. Equipped with rich natural resources it ranks 5th in per capita GDP*2. Beyond its traditional industry in petrochemicals Brunei Darussalam has been promoting a diversification of its economy. The usage of GNSS and other GeoSpatial solutions is expected to increase productivity and efficiency.
This year’s conference main theme will be "GeoSpatial Challenges in the Asia-Pacific Region" thereby broadening the beyond GNSS to include related technologies and application including remote sensing and big data analysis relevant for South East Asian countries. For the first time this year an industrial session with experts from European and Asian countries will introduce new products and services with the aim to create business opportunities between participants. As in previous years, technical trends in Multi-GNSS, potential GNSS applications in the region, activity reports from MGA participants, progress reports on the joint experiments, and MGA future activities will be also presented.
Additionally, the Survey Department of the Ministry of Development in Brunei Darussalam will sponsor and organize an excursion to the tropical rainforest on 10th December. Participants can experience the rich nature of beautiful forests, to encounter the wild life and GNSS signal acquisition under a tropical rainforest canopy.
