Thusday 24 June 2021

During the FIG e-Working Week an entire day is dedicated to workshops. Aimed at transferring practical skills and knowledge in specific areas related to the FIG2021 theme - Smart Surveyors for Land and Water Management: Challenges in a New Reality, the workshops will equip participants with the know-how and tools to address issues facing our world today.

9th FIG Workshop on the Land Administration Domain Model / 3D Land Administration

The increasing complexity of densely built-up areas and infra-structures (3D Land Uses) requires the proper registration of the legal status of built environment (private and public), which only can be provided to a limited extent by the existing 2D representations. 3D representations of legal space can be seen in other steps of the spatial development: planning, design, permitting, constructing, enforcement, and so on. 3D data sharing and reuse are topics of growing importance. The information infrastructure is a tool to realize data sharing by networked connectivity and improved interoperability. Standards play a crucial role in the information infrastructure, and specifically the earlier mentioned LADM (ISO 19152:2012). This standard has been in use for eight years by now, and the ISO TC211 members decided that the standard is up for revision and should address land administration with a wider scope, such as valuation, spatial planning (planned land use), marine spaces and with more detailed 3D representations.

The workshop will focus on the latest innovations and developments in 3D Land Administration and on the developments related to the Land Administration Domain Model. The workshops aims to involve relevant FIG Commissions in the development of LADM Edition II. The decision to publish LADM Edition II as multipart had as a consequence that a New Working Items Proposal (NWIP) and a Working Draft (WD) have to be formulated for each Part. It is expected that this can be done with the cooperation of relevant commissions, the FIG Standards Network and external organisations. It means a real contribution, so work has to be done.

Generic tool for land consolidation

Organised by FIG Commission 8 - Spatial planning and development

The workshop will discuss the current idea of a generic tool for land consolidation. The tool can be configured to meet the needs of local contexts regarding tenure system, legislation and process / procedures.

Blended Learning: lessons from our responses to COVID-19

Organised by FIG Commission 2 - Professional Education

This workshop aims to provide examples of good practice in responding to the constraints of COVID-19 and the rapid move to online and remote education, and discuss these. This will form a basis for workshopping what blended learning will look like for surveying education.

During 2020 all teaching and training institutions had to adapt very quickly so they could respond to the need for remote learning. During this transformation to online learning we saw may very innovative and inspiring approaches to online learning. However, we also found that online learning has very definite disadvantages. Some students really cannot cope well with online learning, and some learning activities need to be face-to-face. These experiences allow us to reflect on the good and bad aspects on transforming our education online. It is now generally accepted that online learning will be part of the future approaches to education, and that the challenge will be to find the best “blend” of online and face-to-face learning.

In this session we have examples of good practices in online education and the most innovative ways learning and teaching to online, and results of a student questionnaire on learning strategies and preferences. There will also be insights into how face-to-face learning can benefit from online content, and how online content can be blended with face-to-face activities. Using break out groups and a World Café approach we also aim to hear from participants about these innovative approaches and how they help us to develop an appropriate “blend” of online and face-to-face learning going forward. This session will help inform the final Commission 2 report on Blended Learning for Surveyors.
