In Malaysia, construction projects are usually complex in nature. However, the slow transition to a digital practice has become the major issue that led to underperforming of the construction industry in terms of quality and productivity. Hence, the integration between Geographic Information System (GIS) and Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) in the construction industry is tend to be conscious. It is important to comprehend the interaction between GNSS and GIS so that the functioning of GIS could be enhanced due to the positional accuracy of GNSS which improving the spatial quality of GIS data. The collection of accurate data especially in the construction industry could consume much time and may easily subject to human failure. Therefore, this research aims to explore the integrated GNSS and GIS technology used in Malaysian construction industry especially in Klang Valley. The research objectives are focuses on the study of the application GNSS and GIS technology and identification of the application and function of the integrated GNSS and GIS technology in construction industry in a variety of constrction contexts such as site analysis, land surveying, excavation, visualization and management, as well as mapping and GIS. Besides, this research also focuses the barriers and measures in adopting integrated GNSS and GIS technology in Klang Valley construction industry. To achieve the objectives of this research, questionnaire surveys and semi-structured in-depth interviews were conducted for the primary data collection. The awareness will generate to enhance the rate of integrated GNSS and GIS technology adoption and minimize the negative perception and barriers to the minimum level.
