Attending the 2015 World Bank Annual Conference of Land and Poverty, which took place in Washington D.C. from March 23 to 27, the Korea Cadastral Survey Corp. (KCSC, President Kim Young-pyo) introduced excellent cases of the national space information system and its technical skills of construction.
The annual conference brings together governments, civil society groups, academia, and private corporations from all over the world to discuss land, poverty, space information administration, and the latest technologies every year.
In the conference, the KCSC presented Korea’s land administration system, policies of land and spatial information, and foreign application examples. Also, it ran a promotion booth and displayed space information technology.
Moreover, it grasped the global trend and gained a foothold for overseas expansion through a meeting with the team leaders of projects of each country. Notably, the top officials of the KCSC met with Jorge Munoz, a land tenure adviser for the World Bank, and discussed ways to enter multilateral development bank projects, and expand the projects in the land and space information sector with the World Bank.
Sa Jae-kwang, who is the head of the Spatial Information Business Department at the KCSC and has participated in the annual conference as a representative of the company, said, “We have confirmed that Korea has world-class policies and technical skills related to land and space information. Taking a participation opportunity, we expect to expand it to more countries around the world.”
Meanwhile, the KCSC will change its name to the Korea Land Information Corporation in June.
