On April 22, 2019, 2018 MASTA and DOCSTA participants of the Centre, made a technical visit to the Land Satellite Remote Sensing Application Center and MNR of China Surveying and Mapping Museum of China. Here is one journal article from Mr. APONTE RODRIGUEZ, JOSE ANGEL, a 2018 MASTA participant in Micro-satellite Technology from Venezuela.
“We made the tour of the facilities where we could interact with various objects and simulations such as: high resolution cameras used in remote sensing satellites, scale size of the scientific works that are carried out in the Antarctic, the history of how they were the first steps for the installation of the mapping and monitoring of the land in China and many simulations in 3d about the creation of small cities.
‘Surveying or land surveying’ is the technique, profession, art and science of determining the terrestrial or three-dimensional positions of points and the distances and angles between them. A land surveying professional is called a land surveyor. These points are usually on the surface of the Earth, and they are often used to establish maps and boundaries for ownership, locations, such as building corners or the surface location of subsurface features, or other purposes required by government or civil law, such as property sales. It is important to highlight that this technical visit allowed us to strengthen the knowledge acquired during our program here in China.
After this visit we moved to Land Satellite Remote Sensing Application Center where we received an interesting talk from the Mr. Sun Lebingy Ms. Lyu Shanshan where they explained the following points: Introduction of LASAC, Natural Resources Land Satellite and their applications, International Cooperation and Prospect.
LASAC: Institutional restructure, important deployment of 19th National Congress of CPC. The establishment of Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) April 2018 and the responsibilities of national land surveillance, the ecological protection and restoration, Promoting the optimization and integration of satellite remote sensing application forces. Is based on Satellite Surveying and Mapping Application Center (SASMAC, NASG).
Then we made a visit to room 207 and 307, Demonstration of satellite simulation system, data management system, stereo mapping of China, the cloud service platform of natural resources satellite image and its application.
This is a very important and nutritious visit for our knowledge. Through this visit, we learned some new technology and utilization which would become an advantage for our upcoming research. ”
