Happy Global Surveyors Day

21 March 2021

On this day, celebrate the indespensable work surveyors continue to undertake all over the globe and share with us your national and regional initiatives.

Recognise this day together with us and recognise the contribution of all aspects of the surveying profession.

How will you be celebrating the Global Surveyors' Day?

It is the hope that this day is being celebrated around the world. It can be celebrated in many different ways, and it is up to the national surveyors to find their best way to celebrate the day.

FIG wishes all the best for all these events and activities, hoping that this will help emphasise the many contributions by surveyors and the surveying profession in all aspects of life.

If you are celebrating this day or have organised activities for the promotion of the work of the surveyors in your country or region, we encourage you to submit and share your 2020 Global Surveyors Day activities at

You can also send photos and a short description to FIG:
