Dear Friend and Colleague,

It is our pleasure to invite you to the largest and most prestigious conference of surveying and geospatial professionals in 2024, held in Accra, Ghana. We expect around 1,200-1,500 surveying and geospatial experts from all over the world.

The International Federation of Surveyors (FIG) is a United Nations and World Bank recognised non-governmental international professional organisation. FIG was founded in 1878 and represents national associations of surveying, cadastre, valuation, national mapping professionals, geospatial experts and quantity surveyors working in both the public and private sectors, in the scientific, research and academic community, as well as from technology innovators and industry from more than 120 countries around the world. 

Our member organizations measure, position, map, locate, appraise and value, estimate and cost, plan, construct, develop and manage the land, the seas and any man-made structures with a vision to extend the usefulness of surveying for the benefit of society, environment and economy. 

Each year, FIG convenes a conference in cooperation with a national member association. The coming Working Week will be held in cooperation with our two members from Ghana Ghana Institution of Surveyors (GhIS) and Licenced Surveyors of Ghana (LISAG)

One of the characteristics and a distinctive feature of FIG conferences are that experts from all the different areas of surveying – interpreted in the broadest sense including land surveyors, geospatial experts, valuers, quantity surveyors, hydrography surveyors etc. – are all represented. FIG brings these different surveying professions and professionals together to enhance the cooperation and understanding of each other’s fields.

The overall theme for the Working Wek 2024 is:
