Reference Frames in Practice Seminar


Two combined technical seminars will be held. The Reference Frames in Practive (RFIP) seminar will be held the first day, while the Building European Links toward South East Asia in the field of EGNSS (BELS+) seminar will be on the second day. The RFIP will provide the international context for many global and Asia-Pacific regional geodetic initiatives as well as overviews of reference frames with multiple national case studies to highlight how different countries are implementing these global initiatives. The BELS+ seminar will provide Training and Awareness to surveyors through the South East Asia region on the use of GNSS tools and data, including a discussion focused on activities at the Research Centre in Vietnam.

BIM For Surveyors

Digital change and BIM are likely to significantly affect the future of the surveying profession. Do we need a more symbiotic relationship between technologists and surveyors? What should, or can, surveyors do to affect technology? What aspects of professionlism in surveying remain relevant in the changing technological landscape? Clearly, the answers lie in where professional surveying judgement can continue to add value, how our work processes can be consistently applied and how data-driven decision-making can be improved.

Scope of the Workshop:

  • What is the state of play of digital change and exemplars of best practice?
  • What do technologists need from surveyors and vice versa?
  • What does this technology suggest for the future of the surveying profession?

TS01E: Deformation in Frames
Commission: 5
Chair: Mr. Nic Donnelly, New Zealand
Rapporteur: Dr. Dan Gillins, United States

While a smart city might have an extremely accurate reference frame, it is only as good as its most recent update unless an effort is made to understand the deformation occurring within that frame. The surface of the earth is moving and this must be taken into account for a smart city to maintain its infrastructure over time. Sometimes, a simple plate motion model may suffice. However, this will not account for intra-plate motions nor any vertical change. Monitoring deformation in frames is a necessary effort to maintain the long term viability of an accurate reference frame for a smart city.

Jointly hosted by FIG and FAO

The 2019 FIG Academic Members Forum is the platform within the 42nd FIG General Assembly where the Academic Members of FIG and other academicians gather to discuss about academic responsibilities and prepare actions.

This session focuses on the role of the academic sector in the implementation and dissemination of the VGGTs through strengthened role of surveyors. A “strengthened role of surveyors” is a connecting entry point to address and discuss the role of academia, especially in mainstreaming the modern data capturing tools (Open Tenure) and fit-for-purpose ICT systems in support of Land Administration (SOLA), developed under the FAO VGGT programme, and targeting both university curricula and continuous professional development courses. Thus surveying students and graduates will be informed about available tools and how to use these tools, they will learn and get experiences.

TS03E: Gravity, Geoids and Vertical Change
Commission: 5
Chair: Mr. David Avalos-Naranjo
Rapporteur: Dr. Kevin Ahlgren, United States

A number of countries around the world are assessing or adapting their vertical reference systems in order to guarantee an efficient support to the growing demand of accurate heights in geo-information. Many are implementing a change from a system based on leveling to one determined by geoid height models. Given the implied ties to sea level and the potential impact of the change in sea level, this effort takes on a more significant role for the surveyors and the geodetic and cadastral agencies developing such models or adapting the leveling datum. This session will incorporate both the practical implications for the surveyor and recent scientific developments for vertical datum realization.

Thus, moulding technology to solving professional problems, and at the same time utilizing technology for improvements and efficiency in professional work, is a symbiotic relationship. BIM is the epitome of this interaction, since utlising it in a different or low cost way may enable new service streams and wider take up.

Strengthening Partnerships in Land Governance in the Asia Pacific Region


Jointly hosted by FIG, UN-Habitat/GLTN, LX Korea, CLSPI, FIG Asia Pacific Capacity Development Network, Vietnam Association of Geodesy, Cartography and Remote Sensing, UN-GGIM

In 2013, various partners initiated the Asia-Pacific Regional Land Tenure Initiative (RLTI) with the objectives of setting up a multi-stakeholder on land governance and tenure issues in the region, furthering knowledge and discussion on regional entry points for land tenure interventions, stimulating discussions on capacity development and learning exchanges and increasing engagement by partners at regional land discourse. Since then, the ‘loose’ Network has become the driving force in maximizing cooperation, exchanges, synergies on land governance and tenure in the region.

Objectives:

  • To sensitize land professionals on the land governance and land tenure challenges and opportunities in the region.
  • To share information on existing projects and initiatives in the region.
  • To identify opportunities for regional collaboration and partnership.

TS04G: Fit-for-Purpose Land Administration – Experiences in Practice
Chair: Dr. Daniel Steudler, FIG Honorary Member, Switzerland
Rapporteur: & Mrs. Anne-Pierre Girardin, France

The topic of "Fit-for-Purpose Land Administration" has been on the FIG agenda since the Joint FIG / World Bank publication in March 2014 (FIG Publication No. 60). The aim of raising the topic at that time was that our professional community would become more aware of providing appropriate and fit-for-purpose services to society rather than "focusing on top-end technical solutions" only. It is important for our profession to recognize that surveying and technology is not the end in itself but a mean to the end. However, there was skepticism about the publication from within the profession ever since it has been published.

The aim of the special session at the FIG-Working Week 2019 in Hanoi is to continue the discussion on FFP and to learn about the standpoints of promoters and sceptics. The special session will be of 90 min. length, where the first 60 min. will include six presentations followed by a panel discussion of 30 min.

Commission: 5
Chair: Dr. Suelynn Choy, Australia
Rapporteur: Dr. Ryan Keenan, Australia

It is presently possible to observe upwards of almost 100 satellites at any one time with the numerous GNSS constellations in orbit. With the shear number of observations and the various differences between GNSS systems, the surveyor can obtain better positional accuries in shorter amounts of time. This session will include contributions on various GNSS error sources like the ionosphere and jamming and different types of processing techniques available throughout the world.
