The Office of the Surveyor General of the Federation (OSGoF), has planned to commission Database Centre so as to mainstream Geospatial Information acquisition and use in the country.
The Surveyor General of the Federation (SGoF), Surv. Samuel Adeniran Taiwo made this disclosure in Abuja during a management meeting.
He acknowledged the commitment of the incumbent Federal Government towards bringing the project that was started since 2012 to realization.
Head of Press and Public Relations, OSGoF, Mr. Abu Michael in a statement said the Geo and E-Commerce Portal of OSGoF would be launched through the database.
“The project would be a sort of centralized omnibus database for stakeholders in Nigeria with the aim of providing easy accessibility and streamlining of geospatial data.
“This would boost Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) for the country as well as her national security,” the statement further disclosed.
He added that the apex Surveying and Mapping Office of the Government of Nigeria would in this year focus attention on the establishment and development of Continuously Operating Reference Station (CORS), charging the Department of Business and Commercial Development to quickly incorporate the arrangement to ensure adequate generation of revenue.
The statement urged members of the management to align all projects and activities of their departments and units with the priority areas of the Federal Government.
Surv. Taiwo said that OSGoF would be donating some surveying and mapping equipment to universities and polytechnics offering related courses, as part of its support to encourage geospatial education in the country.
