GGOS Japan celebrates its 10th anniversary this year. It was established as GGOS Working Group of Japan in 2013 and has been entitled as a GGOS Affiliate since 2017.
On October 12, 2023, GGOS Japan was awarded with the Tsuboi Prize (group prize) from the Geodetic Society of Japan. In Sendai where the Society’s annual meeting was held, the award certificates were given to eight institutions (Hitotsubashi University, Geospatial Information Authority of Japan, Japan Coast Guard, National Institute of Polar Research, Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, National Institute of Information and Communications Technology, National Astronomical Observatory of Japan, and University of Tokyo).
Its continuous contributions to both domestic and international geodetic communities are highly evaluated by the society. After the award ceremony, Toshimichi Otsubo and Basara Miyahara jointly gave a commemorative talk starting with Laura Sánchez’s pre-recorded speech as GGOS President.
Congratulations on the achievements of our Japanese colleagues. GGOS is looking forward to working closely with GGOS Japan and our Affiliate members.
