Royal Thai Survey Department is the main organization that sets Geodesy bench mark networks for both private and government sectors to use as the points of control and references for their survey.
Horizontal Control Point NetworksHorizontal Bench Mark Networks are GPS satellite network which are referred to WGS84 (ITRF 2000) classified into 3 types
1. Reference Network, which consists of 8 points
2. Primary Network, which consists of 11 points
3. Secondary Network, which consists of 75 points
Vertical Control Point NetworksVertical Control Point Networks are the primary control which are referred to mean sea level (Lak Island) which can be classified into 2 parts
1. The network on the upper part of Lak Island
2. The network on the lower part of Lak Island
Land Subsidence SurveyRTSD supports Office of Natural Resources and Environmental Policy and Planning’s surveys on land subsidence. RTSD has continually been carrying out the land subsidence survey of Bangkok and its vanity since 1978 by mean of the primary level of survey.
