International Seminar on GlobeLand30 and its Applications held in Beijing

  The International Seminar on GlobeLand30 and its Applications was held in Beijing, China from 29 June to 2 July 2015. The Seminar was jointly organized by the National Administration of Surveying, Mapping and Geoinformation (NASG) of China and the Secretariat of the United Nations Committee of Experts on Global Geospatial Information Management (UN-GGIM). 22 senior administrative and technical staff of national mapping authorities from 15 countries attended the Seminar. Dr. Li Pengde, Deputy Director General of NASG, and Co-Chair of UN-GGIM, addressed the Seminar on the opening.

  NASG developed the world’s first global land cover datasets at 30m resolution (GlobeLand30), and provided the GlobeLand30 datasets to the United Nations in 2014, to provide scientific decision-making support for the UN and the Member States to measure and monitor critical environmental components of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the post-2015 development agenda. As part of a series of events organized under the project on Strengthening Geospatial Information Management Capacity Development in China and other Developing Countries funded by the Chinese Government, the Seminar on GlobeLand30 and its Applications was designed to share technologies and experience and facilitate international cooperation in the field of land cover mapping.

  The Seminar, lasting for four days, included presentations, demonstrations, hands-on exercises on mapping methodology, data verification, statistical analysis and application cases of GlobeLand30, as well as other supporting technologies. It also provided an opportunity for the participants to share their country experiences of land cover mapping.

  During the Seminar, the participants paid technical visits to Hebei Provincial Administration of Geoinformation and Satellite Surveying and Mapping Application Center of NASG.
