REFERENCE FRAMES IN PRACTICE SEMINAR

The technical seminar aims at surveyors, spatial professionals, students and operational geodesists who are interested in learning more about practical aspects of reference frames from some of the world’s leading geodesists and geodetic surveyors. As well as covering reference frame basics, the two-day seminar focused particularly on dealing with deformation and datum unification

The Reference Frames in Practice Seminar will take place on 4 and 5 May 2018 at Istanbul Congress Center.
