UNIGIS joining FIG as Academic Member

UNIGIS is proud to announce that at the latest Council Meeting of the International Federation of Surveyors (FIG), the Council decided to welcome UNIGIS as an Academic Member.

FIG was founded in Paris in 1878 and is the premier international organization representing the interests of surveyors worldwide. It is a federation of the national member associations and covers the whole range of professional fields within the global surveying community. It provides an international forum for discussion and development aiming to promote professional practice and standards.

Academic membership links universities or their faculties or departments, that are responsible for surveying education and related disciplines in more than 110 countries. These institutions promote education or research in one or more of the disciplines of surveying.

UNIGIS is honoured to share these objectives with FIG, and we are looking forward to fruitful cooperation in the future!
