REFERENCE FRAMES IN PRACTICE SEMINAR

4-5 May at Hilton Bosphorus Instanbul

The technical seminar aimed at surveyors, spatial professionals, students and operational geodesists who are interested in learning more about practical aspects of reference frames from some of the world’s leading geodesists and geodetic surveyors. As well as covering reference frame basics, the two-day seminar focused particularly on dealing with deformation and datum unification.
