The overall theme of FIG Congress 2022 is:

Volunteering for the future – Geospatial excellence for a better living

The surveying profession has changed radically over the years. Geo-information and all related professions and topics are seen in a much broader context and as public goods and beneficial for the well-being and betterment of the entire society. Surveyors and geospatial experts of today are profiting from the latest technological developments, which requires that our profession can use this potential. Examples are the development that have taken place during the times of COVID19, how to optimally use open access to data and how surveyors can beneficially connect with and convince our partners from other disciplines that despite progress and automation of measurement techniques with tools and methods available for everyone, they still need surveyors.
