The Aubrey Barker Fund
announces Support for Student Organisations
The Trustees of the Aubrey Barker Fund have announced that the fund will
consider applications from student organisations within the field of land
surveying, quantity surveying and land economy to support student meetings. Land
surveying can be interpreted as including subjects now generally described as
geomatics. Funds to support student meetings can be used as travel bursaries to
attend the meeting, to support tutors on training courses, or for specific costs
in setting up a conference or training course.
Applications can be made at any time and should include details of the
meeting for which support is needed, a justification for support, and a cost
breakdown of how the money applied for would be spent. .
The Aubrey Barker Fund was set up in March 1972 in memory of Aubrey Barker, a
distinguished surveyor from Guyana who was president-designate of The
Commonwealth Association of Surveying and Land Economy (CASLE) but who died
before taking office. Colleagues throughout the British Commonwealth contributed
to a fund to be used to support education, training, research and projects
related to the disciplines of land surveying, quantity surveying and land
economy. The Fund has helped students to attend courses and carry out projects
and the trustees also organize an essay competition. Books and equipment have
been provided to colleges in developing countries.

1st FIG Young Surveyors European Meeting in Portugal
Greeting from FIG President CheeHai Teo
Dear Colleagues and Friends
I was interviewed recently and one of the questions raised relates to Youth. My
response was the youth of today is the adult of tomorrow and the belief is that
if we can more effectively address the issues, concerns and aspirations of the
youth today, we could perhaps have a more dynamic and productive tomorrow. This
belief equally applies to the Young Surveyors of today.

Finnish "Young Surveyors Network" Received Recognition
Finnish Young Surveyors Network (YSN Finland) received the award from
Surveying Engineers Association of Finland in national surveying days that
was held in April 2015 in Espoo, Finland. As an award YSN Finland got a
stone pole number 26. Pole is like boundary mark, but smaller. YSN Finland
is established by Lapland University of Applied Science-Land Surveying
The Finland’s Young Surveyor Network was awarded because it has
purposefully worked to establish and maintain a land surveyor identity. This
is even more important nowadays when the surveyor’s remit is wider than ever
and the land surveyor degree program is distributed with other study degree
programs. YSN Finland has been nationally and internationally very active
and thus given rise to contacts between the Finnish and international
Pole number 26
Tuomas Jylhä and Niko Haaraniemi in
The founders of YSN Finland are Lapland UAS land surveying students,
Tuomas Jylhä and Niko Haaraniemi. They got the idea of establishing the
national network for land surveyors after participating the European Young
Surveyors meeting in Portugal, October 2014.
