Its research covers BIM+GIS with cross-domain integration by using SuperMap GIS Platform in the Smart City. The institution has a duty to transfer knowledge to the students majoring in Smart City development. It is also the training center for the public and private sectors.
At the course, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Tarawut Boonlua, head of RDSC delivered the opening speech and introduced the background of RDSC, the real projects that RDSC has done by using SuperMap technology as well as its cooperation with SuperMap.
During these 3 days, speakers from RDSC taught participants how to use SuperMap iDesktop, iServer, and iPortal for Smart City development. RDSC expected all participants would get some knowledge and use SuperMap technology to implement and develop smart cities in their own provinces.
During the closing ceremony, Ms. Sukolratana Chuansomboonsiri (Neili), the representative from Asian and Oceania Center at SuperMap Software Co., Ltd. awarded the certificate of appreciation to RDSC speakers who made this successful training.
