OSGoF (Office of Surveyor General of Federation) is currently active establishing NIGNET (NIGerian GNSS Reference NETwork). This network, formed by state-of-art CORS (Continuously Operating Reference Station) GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite Systems) equipments, intends to implement the new fiducial geodetic network of Nigeria.
NIGNET will serve many different applications at national and continental level. In fact, the first motivation to implement NIGNET is to also contribute for the AFREF (African Reference Frame) project - http://geoinfo.uneca.org/afref/. At national level, NIGNET will serve primarily as the fiducial network that will define and materialize a new reference fully consistent with the modern space-geodetic techniques for Geodesy and Surveying.
