NGS is excited to announce that we will be presenting a full-day’s worth of content on the National Spatial Reference System (NSRS) Modernization during the FIG Working Week 2023 meeting, taking place at the end of May 2023 in Orlando, Florida. For the first time in over 20 years, this annual gathering of the International Federation of Surveyors will be taking place in the United States, hosted by the National Society of Professional Surveyors (NSPS).

“The International Federation of Surveyors (FIG) is a United Nations and World Bank recognised non-governmental international professional organization. FIG was founded in 1878 and represents national associations of surveying, cadastre, valuation, national mapping professionals, geospatial experts and quantity surveyors working in both the public and private sectors, in the scientific, research and academic community, as well as from technology innovators and industry from more than 120 countries around the world.”
The 2023 Working Week will be an exciting week-long conference that brings the international community of surveying and geospatial professionals together for a mix of technical sessions and workshops, a trade exhibition and a variety of side events and social functions.
On Wednesday, May 31, 2023, NGS Director Juliana Blackwell will give a keynote address to the full conference and NGS staff will host a series of sessions on our efforts to modernize the U.S. National Spatial Reference System. More information will be posted to the NGS FIG 2023 webpage as it becomes available.
We encourage you to attend as much of the Working Week as you can, and be sure to join us on the Wednesday after Memorial Day to talk to NGS staff about NSRS Modernization.
