It describes visually in detail the breadth of Geomatics professional competencies, the cross-sectoral nature of the discipline and the inter-professionalism of Geomatics as a potential career path.

Lund University and FIG Commission 2 Mentorship Programme Network

FIG Commission 2 has started Mentorship Programme Network together with Lund University. Initiative to this mentorship network was created during the the FIG-congress in Munich in October 2006. The aim is to create a worldwide network for student mentorship programmes. The programme has now started at Lund University (Sweden) for final year students at the MSc engineering programme in Land Surveying and Management. The student has got one professional land surveyor as his/her personal mentor during the final year of studies and thesis work. The mentorship programme is organised at Lund University, but integrated in the activities of the Swedish Association of Chartered Surveyors and the Swedish Society of Real Estate Economics. At the second phase the Network is now interested to get other universities involved. The leading idea is to create a network of membership programmes, and provide the students with contacts to other students abroad. They are likely to develop the network, e g, with a student forum, personal blogs, wikipedia and other network links. The mentors could also join the network, but we believe that the students might be the first enthusiasts to develop the network. Read more about the programme in the invitation letter.

As a first tentative approach, the Lund University International Student Forum for surveying students and mentorship programs is launched at http://fig-forum.student.lth.se/index.php. The international mentorship network will be initiated gradually.

The Mentorship Programme Network will be part of FIG Commission 2 activities in 2007-2010.
