The opening ceremony of the “MOI’s Implementation of Smart National Geographic Program and Spatial Mapping Technology Presentation” held by the MOI today (17th) was hosted by Interior Deputy Minister Chiu Chang-yueh. Deputy Minister Chiu said that the Government has activated the 3D national map this month and the 20-meter grid DTM (Digital Terrain Model) data will be officially released today. The Construction and Planning Agency has established a national utility database that spans 462,000 hectares and has been integrated with national mapping information. Through the exchange of ideas between experts in industry, government, and academia, it is hoped that relevant operations can continue to be improved. Not only will this help the development of self-driving cars, 3D smart government is also a step closer.

Deputy Minister Chiu pointed out that, in an effort to promote smart government, the Ministry of the Interior (MOI) has seen many accomplishments since 2016. Apart from the continuation of the construction of national geographic foundation data, the 3D national map has also been officially released in November this year and the online “Multi-dimensional National spatial Information Service Platform” service was activated. In order to enrich the content of the national map, national DTM data is being continuously updated. Today, the “2020 20-meter grid DTM Data for Taiwan and Some Outlying Islands” has been officially released for public use.

Also, the Construction and Planning Agency has established a national utility database spanning 462,000 hectares and covering 96% of Taiwan’s urban planning area (urban roads over 8 meters). In the future, data establishment for cross-regional roads in non-metropolitan areas will also be facilitated, such as county and rural roads, aiming to build a comprehensive public utility database system.

According to Deputy Minister Chiu, the MOI has established the TGOS (Taiwan Geospatial One Stop) map platform for the public to use. The MOI will continue to work with relevant ministries to promote the R&D of key technologies for self-driving cars while optimizing the data integration platform and integrating highly refined mapping supply services to perfect the one-stop framework of “vehicle, road, cloud, and map.”

In order to promote the communication and exchange of the National Geographic Information System (NGIS), the event was held under the theme of “Cross-domain Sharing and Decision Making Upgrade,” combining 4 topics: “DTM Open Data & Value-added Applications,” “Map Integration, Circulation and Applications,” “Applications of 3-dimensional National Mapping Achievements,” and “Presentation of Spatial Mapping Technology Results” according to the MOI. Experts and scholars were invited to give presentations and deliver speeches where more than 600 attended. The MOI remarked that through the exchange of ideas between experts of industry and academia, Taiwan’s 3D mapping applications and industrial development are hoped to increase, deepening spatial data to aid smart decision making.
