focus of the 3rd FIG Regional Conference will be on economic,
environmental and social development combining these three main
factors to promote sustainable development. Therefore the theme for
this first FIG regional conference in Asia and the Pacific is “Surveying
the Future – Contributions to Economic, Environmental and Social
Development”, which hopefully gives responses to the actual
problems of the region and develops models how surveyors and their
expertise can help in solving these problems. This conference is
organised by the International Federation of Surveyors (FIG), the
Ikatan Surveyor Indonesia (ISI) and the Indonesian National
Coordinating Agency for Surveys and Mapping (BAKOSURTANAL).
The conference is co-sponsored by the United Nations and its
