The Aubrey Barker Fund announces Support for Student Organisations

The Trustees of the Aubrey Barker Fund have announced that the fund will consider applications from student organisations within the field of land surveying, quantity surveying and land economy to support student meetings. Land surveying can be interpreted as including subjects now generally described as geomatics. Funds to support student meetings can be used as travel bursaries to attend the meeting, to support tutors on training courses, or for specific costs in setting up a conference or training course.

Applications can be made at any time and should include details of the meeting for which support is needed, a justification for support, and a cost breakdown of how the money applied for would be spent. .

The Aubrey Barker Fund was set up in March 1972 in memory of Aubrey Barker, a distinguished surveyor from Guyana who was president-designate of The Commonwealth Association of Surveying and Land Economy (CASLE) but who died before taking office. Colleagues throughout the British Commonwealth contributed to a fund to be used to support education, training, research and projects related to the disciplines of land surveying, quantity surveying and land economy. The Fund has helped students to attend courses and carry out projects and the trustees also organize an essay competition. Books and equipment have been provided to colleges in developing countries.

1st FIG Young Surveyors European Meeting in Portugal

Greeting from FIG President CheeHai Teo

Dear Colleagues and Friends

I was interviewed recently and one of the questions raised relates to Youth. My response was the youth of today is the adult of tomorrow and the belief is that if we can more effectively address the issues, concerns and aspirations of the youth today, we could perhaps have a more dynamic and productive tomorrow. This belief equally applies to the Young Surveyors of today. Read more..


1st FIG Young Surveyors European Meeting in Portugal

17 - 18 October in Lisbon, Portugal


Finnish "Young Surveyors Network" Received Recognition

Finnish Young Surveyors Network (YSN Finland) received the award from Surveying Engineers Association of Finland in national surveying days that was held in April 2015 in Espoo, Finland. As an award YSN Finland got a stone pole number 26. Pole is like boundary mark, but smaller. YSN Finland is established by Lapland University of Applied Science-Land Surveying Engineering students.

The Finland’s Young Surveyor Network was awarded because it has purposefully worked to establish and maintain a land surveyor identity. This is even more important nowadays when the surveyor’s remit is wider than ever and the land surveyor degree program is distributed with other study degree programs. YSN Finland has been nationally and internationally very active and thus given rise to contacts between the Finnish and international surveying organizations.  


Pole number 26

Tuomas Jylhä and Niko Haaraniemi in Lissabon

The founders of YSN Finland are Lapland UAS land surveying students, Tuomas Jylhä and Niko Haaraniemi. They got the idea of establishing the national network for land surveyors after participating the European Young Surveyors meeting in Portugal, October 2014.
