Taiwan’s government agency for promoting GIS has signed a deal with SuperGeo Technologies to promote the development of geospatial technologies and applications in the country.
The Taiwan GIS Centre (TGIC) is part of the Council for Economic Planning and Development, and is in charge of regulating GIS-related policies as well as allocating GIS expenditures across the country.
The TGIC will collaborate with SuperGeo Technologies in a number of areas, including human resource development and education, technology research and development, and resource sharing and networking for the geospatial domain in Taiwan and the neighbor countries.
The cooperation is expected to increase interflow and benefits for the government, the academia, and GIS users in Taiwan.
In the past SuperGeo Technologies has helped Taiwanese authorities use GIS systems to improve response to earthquakes.
The technology helps planners review the structure of urban space, formulate urban disaster prevention plans, and plan spatial strategies for refuge and rescue.
