FIG President Stig Enemark attended the International Congress on Geomatics and Surveying Engineering in Valencia, Spain, 18 – 21 February 2008 as a key note speaker.

The focus of the conference was to emphasise before the public authorities and the society the role of the surveying profession at national and international level. A special focus was given to developing the cadastre in Spain and enhancing the role of the surveying profession within the cadastral area, as is the case in most countries throughout the world.

The conference was organized by the Spanish Association of Surveyors in cooperation with the Technical University of Valencia.

Plenary session on the cadastre included presentations from Jesús S. Miranda Hita, Director of the Spanish Cadastre; Prof. Ian Williamson, University of Melbourne; and Prof. Stig Enemark, President of FIG. Another plenary session on Mapping and Cartography included presentations from Prof. Ian Dowman, President of ISPRS.
