GeneralCommissionSurvey
In recent news, the UN Development Program (UNDP) have signed a capacity development project with the General Commission for Survey (GCS) with the main objective of developing national capacities in conducting geospatial and marine surveys and the production of maps, marine navigational electronic and paper systems as well as geospatial information.

According to UNDP, the one-year aims to support the government in its efforts to promote the national development through greater efficiency in producing and marketing geo-spatial survey products and services.

In its subsequent phases, the project will engage the advisory services of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) and the International Hydrographical Organization (IHO). It is viewed by GCS as part of its intent to advance the hydrographic science in Saudi Arabia.
