The intent is to include aerial photographs, satellite imagery, and geosaptial data. Half of the funds for this project will come from the Bt 350 billion water management project that is underway in the country, with the rest of the funds coming from the central government.

The maps are seen to enhance the Bt 2.2 trillion large-scale infrastructure project, as well as forest, farming and land management. Many government agencies have maps at various scales, but the different scales and systems have lately caused coordination and collaboration issues.

At present, mapping is run by the Thailand Spatial Data Infrastructure (TSDI) under the Geo-Informatics and Space Technology Development Agency. Plodprasop said that the Office of the National Economic and Social Development Board had agreed to set up an agency to direct the drafting of the two master maps.

The comments came at a seminar organised by the Geo-Informatics and Space Technology Development Agency and the Office of the National Economic and Social Development Board, was attended by officials from a range of agencies including the Royal Thai Survey Department and the Royal Forest Department.

Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra last month approved a proposal for a master map in two scales, 1:50,000 and 1:4,000. The first would be for national policy-making and planning, and the second for management of land use.
