HURRICANE MITCH RELIEF ACTIVITIES

As part of the Department of Commerce (DOC) “Implementation Plan for Reconstruction Work in Central America,” dated July 1999, the National Geodetic Survey (NGS) is tasked to develop a modern geodetic reference system for El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua.  This system will provide the spatial framework for precision marine, air and land navigation, mapping and charting, resource management, disaster relief operations, engineering and cadastral surveys, and Geographic Information Systems (GIS).  The design of this framework will include, to the extent possible, several elements of the U. S. National Spatial Reference System (NSRS), including Continuously Operating Reference Stations (CORS), a High Accuracy Reference Network (HARN), absolute gravity observations, and technology transfer to ensure a sustainable infrastructure.  These data will become the framework for an Inter-American Geospatial Data Network (IGDN).  (NOTE:  At this time, funding for activities in El Salvador and Guatemala is undetermined.  All references to activities in those countries are contingent on appropriate funding levels.)

 

To ensure the successful completion of this plan, NGS must develop a close relationship with the national government agencies and academic institutions in these countries responsible for surveying and mapping activities.  The contacts listed below have not been completely verified at this time:

PROGRAMA DE AYUDA - HURACÁN MITCH

Como parte del programa de ayuda del Departamento de Comercio (Department of Commerce, DOC) de Estados Unidos titulado “Plan para el trabajo de reconstrucción en Central América” (“Implementation Plan for Reconstruction Work in Central America”) fechado en julio de 1999, el Servicio Gedésico Nacional (National Geodetic Survey, NGS) está encargado de desarrollar un marco moderno de referencia geodésica con precisión adecuada para la navegación terrestre, marítima y aérea; trabajos de cartografía y topografía; catálogo o inventario de recursos naturales; operaciones de socorro en todo tipo de desastres; levantamientos de ingeniería y catastro; y aplicaciones del Sistemas de Información Geográfica (SIG). El diseño de este marco geodésico copiará, a ser posible, varios elementos del Sistema Espacial de Referencia Nacional en EE UU (U.S. National Spatial Reference System, NSRS) incluyendo Estaciones de Referencia de Operación Constante (Continuously Operating Reference Stations, CORS) una Red de Referencia de Gran Exactitud (High Accuracy Reference Network, HARN), observaciones de gravedad absoluta y la transferencia de tecnología para asegurar la continuidad de esta infraestructura. Toda esta información formará parte de un conglomerado denominado Red Inter-Americana de Datos Espaciales (Inter-American Geospatial Data Network, IGDN). Se debe subrayar que, en estos momentos, la financiación para subvencionar las actividades en El Salvador y Guatemala está aún sin determinar. Por lo tanto, toda referencia a las actividades proyectadas para estos dos países está supeditada a la aprobación de dichos presupuestos.
