Correspondent Member: 

Society of Geodetic Engineers, Geomatics and Surveyors of Venezuela (SIGGMA)

SIGGMA is a non-profit and independent organization, which seeks to take advantage of digital platforms to interconnect and enhance the synergy and cooperation between Venezuelan professionals and students of geodesy, geomatics and surveying, established in
different parts of the world.

While the association is being built it is admitted as a correspondent member of FIG, hoping that SIGGMA will soon become an association member.

Welcome to both organisations!
