BIM for Surveyors
Chair: Prof. Christian Clemen, Germany

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is changing the way how surveyors work, think, collaborate and make money. Using and sharing multidimensional digital representations of buildings are the driving forces for the digitalization of our work. This affects many tasks surveyors and GIS professionals perform, e. g. cost estimation, GIS analysis, engineering surveying, construction work, land management and facilities management.

Scope of the Workshop:

  • Teaching theoretical background of the BIM method (concepts, workflows and standards)
  • Best practice presentations from large projects and SME (from surveyor’s point of view)
  • Presentation of the latest software (surveying, integration and collaboration with BIM, CAD, GIS)

4th FIG Young Surveyors Conference
Chair: Ms. Eva-Maria Unger, Austria
Rapporteur: Ms. Melissa Harrington, New Zealand

Beyond Boundaries: The Changing Role of the Surveyor

In the fast paced world of today, technology is rapidly evolving and so is the role of surveyors. From basic mapping to geodesy and data analytics, surveyors play an important and diverse role in society. The shrinking gap between consumers and professional geospatial applications is driving the need for greater awareness of surveyors and the role they play. It is crucial that the surveyors of today can create an informed society for tomorrow. The 4th Young Surveyors Conference is a two day meeting that provides an environment for Young Surveyors from different cultures, countries, academic, and professional experience to discuss these changes and how they can play an integral role in the future of society.

High Level Session VCSP
Chair: Ms. Eva-Maria Unger, Austria
Rapporteur: GLTN

Together with Global Land Tool Network (GLTN), the FIG Young Surveyors Network (FIG YSN) established a competence based volunteer program for Young Surveyors also known as Volunteer Community Surveyor Program (VCSP). VCSP is an innovative volunteer program that is a powerful driver for both social impact and professional development. The VCSP leverages on the skills, experience, talents and education of young surveyors, matches this competence with the needs of GLTN, particularly in GLTN’s county level implementation plans and programs.

This session is all about the Feedback/Reflection on the Volunteer Program, which was a small-scale, short-term pilot that helped GLTN/UN-Habitat and FIG YSN to learn how a large-scale program might work in practice. This pilot provided a platform for all stakeholders to test logistics, prove value and reveal benefits. The Volunteer Community Surveyor Program was scheduled for a one-year period and after that a committee evaluated the program. The impact and the evaluation will be presented during this session which will follow by a roundtable focusing on the future of the Volunteer Program.

The session therefore aims to reflect on the what?, how? Where? And by who?

Traditional Turkish Evening - FIG Foundation Dinner


The foundation of Military Museum , which is one of the leading museums of the world in terms of the richness of its collections, dates back to the 15th century, though not in the modern sense. After Istanbul was conquered by the Turks in 1453, the Saint Irene Church was organized as a 'Cebehane', an armory, in which valuable war armaments, tools and equipment were stored. In 1726, all the materials in Cebehane were reorganized and a new foundation, called 'Dar-ül Esliha', the Place of Arms, was established. The foundations of Turkish museology in modern sense were laid down in 1846 by the efforts of Artillery Marshall Ahmet Fethi Pasha and this date has become the foundation of Turkish museology and the Military Museum for the first time in real sense.

A four-course delicious Turkish dinner menu will be served during the dinner. Unforgettable moments with good music and traditional shows will be waiting for you with the amazing atmosphere of the Museum.

  • Registration is required. Tickets available for purchase from the Registration Desk.

Rapporteur: Ms. Marije Louwsma, Netherlands

India's great moral leader Mahatma Gandhi famously said that there is enough on Earth for everybody's need, but not enough for everybody's greed. Today, Gandhi's insight is being put to the test as never before. A need is something that a person cannot live without such as Water; Food; Clothing; Roof over one's head. A want is something that you can live without but do not prefer to. Sustainable development calls on nations to plan in a sustainable manner. This session provides insights and discussions on resource management.

Rapporteur: Prof. Jennifer Whittal, South Africa

Due to emerging global challenges, and advancement in technology and surveying equipments and techniques, the role of a surveyor is changing rapidly. Though professional education is inevitable in response to the changing role of a surveyor, in most cases the approach to acquiring skills is still very traditional. Similarly, limited opportunities of professional education is creating a gap in terms of quantity. The primary aim of this session is to provide a platform for exchanging experiences and knowledge about educational innovation and change in professional education for better adaptation to the broader scope of the surveying profession.

Modernize Land Administration Systems
Off-the-Shelf GIS Technology for Modern Cadastral Operations


Gone are the days of building highly customized cadastral systems with siloed disparate technologies. They’re too expensive to maintain and they don’t keep up with all the new capabilities that GIS provides. ArcGIS is a complete, interoperable, open, and purpose-built system for cadastral operations to improve efficiency, manage data integrity, and share data across your organization and with the public. Whether you aim to improve data quality, increase throughput, or improve spatial accuracy, become more transparent - the ArcGIS platform delivers necessary capabilities from fit-for-purpose to enterprise cadastral systems.

Round Table on Securing Tenure Rights, Surveying and the VGGT (FAO & FIG)
Chair: Mr. Morten Hartvigsen, Denmark


The Round Table will discuss how the implementation of the Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests (VGGT) is fundamental to securing tenure rights (in the various tenure regimes), the role of surveying to secure those rights and how they complement each other. By discussing some country experiences, the Round Table will look into ways by which the VGGT can be used to improve surveying protocols and standards so that this can be done in effective and efficient manner, speeding up the tenure regularization process.

YS Mentoring Toolkit
Commission: Young Surveyors
Chair: Ms. Eva-Maria Unger, Austria
Rapporteur: Ms. Melissa Harrington, New Zealand

This session will introduce a key part of our future, the FIG YS Mentoring Toolkit. This guide has been developed following two workshops organised by the FIG Young Surveyors Network held at the FIG Working Weeks in Christchurch, New Zealand and Helsinki, Finland.
This toolkit presents an overarching view of mentoring with accompanying resources and templates. It is envisaged that participants of the FIG YSN Mentoring Program will use these concepts and tools when establishing formal and informal mentoring programs and relationships. It is designed to bring a consistent approach to mentoring across FIG to ensure best practice is achieved for this very important component of professional development. We will have a look at each component that were considered in the development of this mentoring program and toolkit.

Use and Application of STDM - Session 1
Chair: Mr. John Gitau, Kenya
Rapporteur: Ms. Eva-Maria Unger, Austria

In pursuance of developing, testing and disseminating pro-poor and gender responsive approaches with regard to land, innovative land tenure security, affordable land management/administration systems, and land related regulatory/legal frameworks and tools, the Global Land Tool Network (GLTN), facilitated by UN-Habitat, has developed the Social Tenure Domain Model (STDM). STDM is a pro-poor, participatory and affordable land tool for capturing person/s to land relationships cognizant of the continuum of land rights. STDM, as it stands, seeks to broaden the land administration framework by providing alternative approaches to the institutional, technical and fiscal gap in conventional land administration systems. It is based on open source technologies thus making the tool available to all and the concept adheres to underlying principles of the Land Administration Domain Model (LADM) ISO standard. The session will introduce GLTN and its land tools including STDM. Participants will be taken through its concept, background, implementation process, application areas and be given a short hands-on demonstration of its main functionality. At the end of the event and based on the brief introduction, young surveyors will be invited to share the possible applications of the tool/s in their own country contexts. The event will also provide a platform through which young surveyors, who have been involved in STDM country implementation, to share their experiences. The session also aims to create a pool of young land professionals who will be able to provide the needed technical support for applying STDM at country level.

Objectives:

  • Introduce GLTN land tools, and in particular the technical aspects, purposes, mainstreaming, adoption and probable piloting and roll out of STDM tool.
  • Promote conceptual awareness of the Social Tenure Domain Model (STDM) and its application, at scale.
  • Provide an overview of the main functionality of the STDM tool and potential use cases.
  • Share country level experience in the tool implementation.
  • Encourage interaction and future networking for in-country application of land tools by GLTN and partners.

ILMS Meeting (International Land Measurement Standards Coalition)
Chair: Mr. James Kavanagh, United Kingdom

  • By invitation
Land measurement standards are a complex but important subject. There is a real opportunity to make land professionals part of the solution of many issues the world is facing. It suffices to think about the land based investment, tenure security, underlying geoinformation and rapid urbanisation issues and the need to have standards in this field.
