Ordnance Survey (OS) is to provide consultancy services to the Guyana Lands and Surveys Commission (GLSC) to re-establish and further develop the GPS Continuously Operating Reference Stations (CORS) network in Guyana. The project seeks to establish and sustainably maintain a modern, robust and accurate national geodetic positioning network for Guyana. A re-established CORS network will help Guyana in relation to meeting its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and will enable better transport, secure land tenure, better government, increased economy and happier citizens. Trevor Benn, GLSC Commissioner said: “Ordnance Survey was chosen because of its detailed understanding of the GLSC’s role as the national mapping, land and geospatial agency, and its own particular insight into sustainable and future use of CORS technology.”
