In addition to being the Traditional Survey and Mapping Day of Vietnam, 14 December 2019 was especially significant as it marked the 60 year anniversary of the Geodesic and Cartography Department.

During the celebration, the Department of Geodesy, Cartography and Geographic Information was awarded the Second-class Independence Medal and was praised by Deputy Minister Nguyen Thi Phuong Hoa, who particularly noted the Department’s contributions in resource management and climate change response.
