The launching ceremony of the national satellite positioning network (VNGEONET) was held on 27 December 2019. According to Mr. Hoang Ngoc Lam, Director of the Department of Geodesy, Mapping and Geographic Information, the project required over four years for construction, installation and training to be complete.

With the aid of the National Satellite Positioning Network, it is hoped that traditional measurement technologies would eventually be made obsolete. Given the immense potential of this technology in the fields of navigation, transportation, construction, agriculture and vehicle management, it is safe to say that VNGEONET is an indispensable part of building smart cities.
