Secretary for Development Michael Wong officiated at the Geospatial Lab's (GeoLab) opening ceremony today.


The GeoLab is equipped with advanced technology and training facilities. Through the integration of education, experience and practice, it will raise public interest in spatial data and explore with the community the value and application of spatial data in support of smart city development.


The lab is at Millennium City I in Kwun Tong, covering an area of 3,000 sq feet. The Tung Wah Group of Hospitals has been selected as the operator through an open tender.


It will provide a fitted-out working space and coaching services to support experimental projects using spatial data and conduct activities such as competitions, workshops and talks.


Complementing the Government's emphasis on science, technology, engineering and mathematics education, the GeoLab will regularly hold talks and practical classes for schools to help students master geospatial technology and knowledge, and enhance their understanding of how to apply spatial data for innovative applications.


The lab's opening hours are 9.30am to 1pm and 2.15pm to 5.30pm, Monday to Saturday, except public holidays.
