Welcome to FIG Working Week 2019

Spring 2019 in Hanoi, Vietnam

FIG Working Week is an exciting week-long conference that brings the international community of surveying and spatial professionals together to experience a mix of interesting plenary and technical sessions and workshops, a trade exhibition and a variety of side events and social functions. The week gives a unique opportunity to discuss key challenges of our time within the surveying profession with fellow peers. Please explore the website for more information. Enjoy. The organising committee looks forward to welcoming you to Hanoi in 2019.

2019 will be a big festival year of the Vietnamese community of surveyors with the 60th anniversary of Surveying and Mapping Day of Vietnam (14/12/1959 -14/12/2019) and the 30th birthday of the VGCR (1989 – 2019). Together with the 65th anniversary of Hanoi’s independence (1954 – 2019), the FIG 2019 will add a great contribution to the festive atmosphere to honour and celebrate this UNESCO’s City of Peace.


Hanoi has been the one of the capital cities growing strongly to reach out for friends all over the globe with great potentials as well as time-tested achievements in education, technology, economics and cultures, while reserving its best
elegance and richness in history and cultures. We believe FIG 2019
will be a great opportunity for the world to come and join our
great celebration.

The FIG General Assembly, at its meeting held at the 2015 Working Week in Sofia, Bulgaria, elected VGCR to be the local hosts for the FIG Working Week 2019. VGCR is experienced professionals and great hosts as they have successfully organized several memorable events and latest the FIG Regional Meeting in 2009.
