An officer at the Survey Department at the Ministry of Development Mohd Helmy bin Haji Abdul Rahman received the ‘Best Abstract Award’ in Darwin, Australia during the 15th Southeast Asia Survey Congress recently.

Mohd Helmy told the Bulletin that the award was based on the abstract he submitted prior to the Congress and presented during a breakout session on August 16.

The project was the result on his postgraduate study at the University of Glasgow, United Kingdom last year about the potential of using the satellite altimetry technology for the study of the sea level change in Brunei Darussalam.

“I was surprised to receive the award by Surveying and Specialised Institute for Remote Sensing and Photogrammetery Commission,” he said.
