FIG Working Week 2017
May 29 - June 2
The week-long conference with its theme “Surveying the world of tomorrow — from digitalization to augmented reality” will bring the international community of surveying and spatial professionals together to experience a mix of interesting technical sessions and workshops, a trade exhibition and a variety of side events and social functions. It will also provide a unique opportunity to discuss key challenges of our time within the surveying profession with fellow peers.
The FIG Working Week is jointly organized by the International Federation of Surveyors (FIG), the Finnish Association of Geodetic and Land Surveyors (MIL) and the Finnish Association of Surveyors (MAKLI). The FIG Working Week is supported by National Land Survey of Finland (NLS).
The 2017 FIG Working Week theme has a clear technical focus that aims to motivate surveyors of tomorrow to improve their technical skills and qualifications as well as their knowledge and education to deal with challenging and rapidly changing technical aspects. It radically differs from previous themes and leads surveyors to think of future technological possibilities within the wider field of surveying.
The international trade exhibition will run concurrently and both international and national corporations are invited to sponsor, participate and display their products and services.
