Article Title: A Framework for the Implementation of the Global Navigation Satellite System in Nigeria
by Dodo J. D and Idowu T. O

The Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) is an extremely valuable tool across a broad range of applications. This creates opportunities for regional and international technological advances in the areas of positioning and location-based services, surveying and mapping, disaster management, navigation, food security and emergency response. GNSS technology provides opportunities for developing countries to take advantage of applications that improve the quality of life, social, economic progress and support priorities for sustainable development. Whereas, the developed countries have fully recognized and taken advantage of this technology, developing countries are yet to fully utilize the technology to improve their economic and social developments. Similarly, it seems there is no serious government policy towards the establishment of GNSS technology, in developing countries, such as Nigeria. Also, human resource development, public and private sensitization for the effective utilization of GNSS technology have not been put in place. Therefore, it is the objective of this paper to highlight some of the challenges facing Nigeria towards the realization of GNSS technology. Also, the paper proposes a framework for the implementation of GNSS in Nigeria
Keywords: GNSS infrastructure, Institutional framework, Nigerian geodetic reference system
