The International Seminar on Geodetic Reference Frame and Location Based Services, jointly organized by the National Administration of Surveying, Mapping and Geoinformation of China (NASG) and the Secretariat of the United Nations Committee of Experts on Global Geospatial Information Management (UN-GGIM), was held in Nanning, China from 24 to 27 November 2015. The Seminar was part of a series of events organized under the project on Strengthening Geospatial Information Management Capacity Development in China and other Developing Countries funded by the Chinese Government. About 60 professionals from 14 countries attended the Seminar. Dr. Li Pengde, Deputy Director General of NASG, and Co-Chair of UN-GGIM, addressed the Seminar on the opening.

The Seminar was organized as an activity for implementation of the United Nations General Assembly Resolution on A Global Geodetic Reference Frame for Sustainable Development adopted on February 26, 2015. The resolution encourages Member States and relevant international organizations to enhance global cooperation in providing technical assistance, especially for capacity development in geodesy for developing countries, and invites Member States to commit to improving and maintaining appropriate national geodetic infrastructure.

The Seminar aimed to share technologies, knowledge and experience on geodetic capacity development and location-based services, as well as to facilitate international cooperation in geodesy. Country reports were given by the participants on national geodetic datum development. International and Chinese experts, as well as private sector representatives, made presentations on global geodetic infrastructure and reference frame, GNSS and BeiDou System, GNSS CORS establishment and operation, national datum development and implementation, geoid determination, GNSS precise positioning technologies and applications in various areas, as well as related equipment progress.

During the Seminar, the participants paid a technical visit to a national level GNSS CORS station near Nanning.
