About us

Established in 1957, Shaanxi Bureau of Surveying, Mapping and Geoinformation (SHBSG) is the unit directly under National Surveying, Mapping and Geoinformation Bureau and national important base for geoinformation production and scientific research, which mainly burdens nation-wide basic surveying and mapping and provincial and city level important surveying and mapping project. Meanwhile, SHBSG discharges governmental duties of unified supervision of surveying, mapping and geoinformation in Shaanxi Province with the titles of “Shaanxi Bureau of Surveying, Mapping and Geoinformation (SHBSG)” and “Shaanxi Administration of Surveying, Mapping and Geoinformation (SHASG)”, which the management system is implementing of dual leadership of National Surveying, Mapping and Geoinformation Bureau and Shaanxi Government, and to take the former as priority. 

Through over 50 years since its establishment, SHBSG is based in Shaanxi and open to the whole country. It undertook the basic surveying and mapping tasks over one thirds of national territorial area and involved in hundreds of significant surveying and mapping construction projects. It took part in Antarctic science investigation, Mount Everest height measurement, China-Nepal and China-Pakistan frontier joint inspection of surveying and mapping and 1st National Geography Census; it compiled and published thousands of mapping products such as Full Geographic Map of the People’s Republic of China and for the first time established provincial basic geoinformation database in China to provide thousands of kinds of measuring scales, geoinformation maps and drawings and technical services to all sectors of society and made important contribution to economic and social development for China and Shaanxi Province.

SHBSG consists of 14 surveying and mapping public institutions (all of them are independent legal entity units), 2 enterprises and 2 affiliated organizations. For now there are totally 2200 stuffs, among which there are 200 senior engineers, 400 engineers, 7 experts who shares government special allowance by the State Council, 1 scientific leading talent, 7 youth academic and scientific leaders of National Surveying, Mapping and Geoinformation Bureau, 19 youth academic and scientific leaders of SHBSG and 1 Shaanxi “Three-Five” talent.

At present, SHBSG has established modern digitization surveying and mapping repertoire combined with geoinformation production and scientific research, such as geodetic surveying and data processing, land registration and engineering surveying, photogrammetry, remote sensing, full digital surveying, geoinformation system engineering, map compiling and publishing, instrument inspection and authentication, surveying and mapping standardization research. It has completed the change to digitalization surveying and mapping system from simulation surveying and mapping system and stride forward informatization surveying and mapping system. As most important basic surveying and mapping team in National Surveying, Mapping and Geoinformation Bureau, SHBSG undertook the basic surveying and mapping tasks over one thirds of national territorial area, so it’s the only team who can undertake gravity surveying, height measurement across the sea, geodetic data processing, surveying and mapping information standardization research and service. SHBSG Antarctic science investigation, Mount Everest height measurement, China-Nepal, China-Pakistan and China-Mongolia frontier joint inspection of surveying and mapping, western China 1:5 blank area surveying and 927 island reef surveying and mapping. it compiled and published thousands of mapping products such as Full Geographic Map of the People’s Republic of China and for the first time established provincial basic geoinformation database in China to provide thousands of kinds of measuring scales, geoinformation maps and drawings and technical services to all sectors of society and made important contribution to economic and social development for China and Shaanxi Province.
