About FIG

Who are the members of FIG?

FIG draws its membership from practitioners working in communities with both the public and private sectors, from the scientific, research and academic community, as well as from the spatial technologies and services community. FIG functions with the goodwill, resources and contribution of its memberships and their corp of volunteers from around the world.

Members of FIG consist of:

  • member associations – national associations representing one or more of the disciplines of surveying
  • affiliates – groups of surveyors or surveying organizations undertaking professional activities but not fulfilling the criteria for member associations
  • corporate members – organizations, institutions or agencies which provide commercial services related to the profession of surveyor
  • academic members – organizations, institutions or agencies, which promote education or research in one or more of the disciplines of surveying. An individual may be appointed as a correspondent in a country where no association or group of surveyors exist that is eligible to join FIG as a member.
