FIG C7/C2 Annual Meeting


The combined FIG C7/C2 Annual Meeting in The Netherlands, at the Locatie Punt, Deventer (Overijssel), proudly hosted by the Netherlands Cadastre, Land Registry and Mapping Agency (Kadaster) and ITC, University of Twente, from 2-4 October 2023.

Mapping and surveying are basic activities to support the management of land and water. Having almost 200 years of experience with mapping and more than 100 years of land consolidation, the Netherlands offers an inspiring environment for the FIG C7/C2 Annual Meeting. Not only the rural and urban environments show the important role our profession plays, but also the institutional and professional contexts are renowned for high-level standards.

The 2023 FIG C7/C2 Annual Meeting promises to be packed with discussion, debate, and directions – as we continue to renew, reimagine, and recommit to ensuring the relevance of cadastres and land management globally.

Linking directly to the FIG Council and FIG C7 Workplans for 2023-26, key topics will include:

  • Fit for Purpose Land Administration (FFPLA)
  • Women’s Access to Land (and Administration)
  • The UN’s Framework for Effective Land Administration (FELA)
  • Artificial Intelligence and Remote Sensing Advances (AI&RS4LA)
  • 3D Land Administration (3DLA)
  • The Land Administration Domain Model ISO 129152 (LADM)
