FIG Congress 2022

11 - 15 September 2022 (Warsaw, Poland)

FIG is excited to invite you to the FIG Congress 2022 and is determined to bring our global community together again at the FIG Congress 2022 - physically (and virtually). 

Get the chance to re-connect, learn and inspire at FIG Congress 2022 in Warsaw, Poland!

FIG and the local organisers from SGP, Poland, are looking forward to seeing you at FIG Congress 2022 and we will offer you intensive learning, and an opportunity to exchange knowledge and experiences during pre-workshops/seminars, sessions, and to be part of the FIG Community.

The overall theme of FIG Congress 2022 is: Volunteering for the future – Geospatial excellence for a better living

The surveying profession has changed radically over the years. Geo-information and all related professions and topics are seen in a much broader context and as public goods and beneficial for the well-being and betterment of the entire society. Surveyors and geospatial experts of today are profiting from the latest technological developments, which requires that our profession can use this potential. Examples are the development that have taken place during the times of COVID19, how to optimally use open access to data and how surveyors can beneficially connect with and convince our partners from other disciplines that despite progress and automation of measurement techniques with tools and methods available for everyone, they still need surveyors.

All these issues will be explored with the following subthemes and  we invite high quality contributions of practitioners and researchers to submit abstracts to the general FIG Commission topics  and to these specific sub-themes:

1. Surveyor 4.0 - future applications for cadastre, environmental questions, engineering and mining

The technologists say that we are at the beginning or even in the middle of the 4th industrial revolution and Surveyors have always been strongly associated with the most modern ways of presenting data.

2. Our profession in and after covid times

The pandemic created new limitations but at the same time it offered also new opportunities. Because every crisis brings new chances, it would be wonderful to share during the Congress the new experiences and approaches.

3. Open access - are these the bullet points of the future roadmap?

What are the aspects, consequences, benefits and disadvantages of the open access to data approach?

4. Surveying competence for other disciplines

Today we do not only measure and “deliver” a map as the final product. Together with other disciplines new geospatial products which are often of a multi-purpose-use are designed and developed according to the specific needs of the potential users.
