Ogun Cors Uses Technology to Aid Land Tracking and Others

As part of measures to ensure efficient land administration, the Ogun State Government through the Bureau of Lands and Survey has acquired a Continuously Operation Reference System. The Director-General of the bureau, Mr. Adewale Oshinowo, said in Abeokuta that the government had acquired the very high resolution satellite imagery system and had been installed in high development areas of the state.

Oshinowo said that equipment like the 3D Stereo and 50cm Imagery had been installed along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, Lagos-Ogun border areas, Abeokuta, Ifo, Ijebu Ode, Ilaro, Ilaro-Ofada road, Ode-Omi and Sagamu. This, he added, would allow surveyors, government agencies and the general public to have access to data through radio satellites, Direct Global Positioning System and the Internet.

A statement signed by the Press Officer of the bureau, Toluwalope Kowo, quoted the DG as saying this would produce high accuracy maps and GPS navigation projects, adding that the development of the CORS network was proceeding and that the project would be inaugurated by the end of November this year.

Oshinowo said the CORS project stations were already built in Abeokuta, Agbara and Ijebu Ode, while four other stations would be developed during the second phase so as to ensure 100 per cent coverage of the entire state.

He said, “The Ogun CORS will be the first and only real-time network of Continuously Operating Reference Station in Nigeria and will supply centimetre-level RTK Global Navigation Satellite System for a variety of positioning applications, which include geodetic and cadastral surveying, roads, bridges and infrastructural projects, monitoring for natural disasters, prevention and mitigation, tectonic plate movement, and deformation of engineering structures analysis.
