FRIM works with UiTM on its research plot survey

3 February 2012 (Friday) – The Forest Research Institute Malaysia (FRIM) has launched a joint survey programme with Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) to compile crucial data and produce a precise map of all its research plots.

The launching of the FRIM Research Plot Survey and Inventory Programme, held on 1 February at the Sungai Kroh picnic area in FRIM, Kepong, was officiated by FRIM Director General (DG) Dato’ Dr Abd Latif Mohmod.

Under this programme, FRIM researchers and 50 students including their three technical supervisors from the UiTM Department of Surveying Science and Geomatics will conduct the field survey in FRIM for a month until the end of February.

For the students, the programme forms part of their technical training activities during semester break. The main output of the exercise will be the precise map of all FRIM research plots established as early as 1920s that have never been properly surveyed before.
