Survey Dept. gets JICA assistance for aerial mapping of North

May 5, 2010 3:23:26 AM - thecolombotimes.com

The Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) is to assist Sri Lanka's Survey Department to update and prepare topographic maps with GIS to the national standards, using aerial photography. The available maps for the Northern Province are decades old, and could not be updated due to security conditions during the conflict, the aid agency said in a media release yesterday.
