TECHNICAL PROGRAMME

Due to the current COVID-19 situation, FIG Working Week 2020 has been cancelled. This is not a decision FIG and the local organisers have taken lightly and there are two overriding concerns that have caused us to make this decision at this time:

First, the Dutch Government announced new measurements to control the COVID-19 outbreak. In the Netherlands all gatherings are prohibited until 1 June.

Second, our primary concern is always the wellbeing of you, and we would not take on the responsibility, during these times, to bring so many surveyors from all over the world together.

FIG Council and the Dutch local organsers have decided that the technical programme will be published.

Please view the programme as it was planned to take place 10 - 14 May 2020. All abstracts and both peer review and regular papers are included. The sessions will not take place. There might be some online webinars/meetings. This will be announced later.

FIG General Assembly - part 1
Organiser: Prof. Dr. Rudolf Staiger, FIG President, Germany

FIG General Assembly 2020 has been cancelled and postponed to 2021.

FIG Council has decided that there will be no General Assembly at all in 2020. Instead, votings and decisions will be moved to the Working Week 2021 in the Netherlands. The agenda of the GA 2020 is already published. It includes reports on the various FIG activities, and it is our hope that you will read the agenda and these reports, and through this stay updated on what is happening in our Federation and what FIG Commissions, Networks Task Forces and other active FIG individuals and groups are working on.

This will also mean that the elections for the two positions as Vice President will be postponed to the General Assembly in 2021, which will be 24 and 28 May 2021 held in Accra, Ghana. Council has decided that the current council will continue until the election has taken place. Hereafter the new elected Vice Presidents will take over immediately.

International Ethical Standards - Working Group Meeting
Organiser: Ms. Winnie Shiu, FIG Commission 1 Chair, Hong Kong SAR, China &
Mr. Gary Strong, FIG Working Group Chair of WG 1.1, United Kingdom

This is an open meeting.

International Ethics Standards (IES) has been published and consists of high level principles which will provide greater consistency to users of professional services.
FIG Council supports IES and the ethical code. As the IES is a general Code of Ethics, FIG council has asked the Working Group 1.1 to look for best practice examples of the IES-Code in our professional environment (surveying, geospatial, land management, valuation, construction surveying, cadastre, ….). At the meeting FIG members and participants can present and discuss best practice examples. Once these best practice examples are identified and discussed FIG Council will check whether the current FIG Ethics Code should be updated or adapted to the IES-Code. This can finally lead to a discussion about a harmonisation or replacement of the existing Ethical Code of FIG.

TS01B: UAV & Photogrammetry: Techniques for Smart Surveyors
Commission: 6
Organiser: Eng. Maria Henriques, FIG Commission 6 Chair, Portugal

Photogrammetry is an old technique, renewed in the 1990’s when new computing techniques were developed, making it user-friendly. Concerning equipment, the technical progresses in the field of digital photography together with UAV helped to expand its domains of use. Due to their skills, engineering surveyors quickly mastered the technique and the equipment. This session is a good example since it includes presentations related to the use of photogrammetry and UAV, but also with the technique itself including the desired theme of accuracy.

TS02C: Construction 4.0: a wider BIM Agenda
Commission: 10
Organiser: Mr. Alan Muse, FIG Commission 10 Chair, United Kingdom

Construction 4.0 refers to the fourth industrial revolution in construction. It deals with a confluence of trends and technologies that promise to reshape the way built environment assets are designed, constructed and operated. Construction 4.0 fuses innovations in industrial production (off site, 3D printing), cyber-physical systems (actuators, sensors, IoT), digital computing technologies (BIM, AI, blockchain). This session examines, therefore, not only developments in BIM, but also related innovations in facilities management and machine learning.

Tuesday 12 May: Integrated Land and Water management

Without integrated land and water management, the Netherlands as also other coastal countries cannot sustain its agricultural and urban development. Climate change, though, increases the risks of sea and riverine floods and extended drought periods and complicates this management task. Unorthodox measures are called for. Get familiar with these measures and discuss them from your critical surveyor perspective.

Commission: 4 and YSN
Organiser: Mr. Simon Ironside, FIG Working Group Chair of WG 4.3, New Zealand Ms. Melissa Harrington, FIG YSN Chair, United States


The effects of plastic pollution on the Earth’s oceans are well documented, potentially catastrophic and increasing exponentially year on year. Rivers have been identified as a significant contributor to and enabler of the plastic pollution problem. Working Group 4.3, a combined initiative of the FIG Young Surveyors Network and Commission 4, focusses on the dumping of plastics (and other waste) into major rivers, river systems and deltas at strategic locations around the world.

The session concludes with an open forum of YSN, Commission 4 and interested delegates discussing the outcomes from the plastic survey and hackathon pre-events, the training of Working Group 4.3 volunteers to undertake plastics surveys at global hotspots and how surveyors and spatial professionals can contribute to the fight against plastic pollution in their home countries.

TS04G: Heights and Height Systems for Change Monitoring in Land/Water Systems
Commission: 5
Organiser: Dr. Dan Roman, FIG Commission 5 Chair, United States

A number of countries around the world are adapting their vertical reference systems from being based on leveling to those determined from geoid height models. Given the implied ties to sea level, this effort takes on a more significant role for surveyors and the geodetic and cadastral agencies developing such models. The importance of accurately understanding the land/water interface and the flow of water is critical for many regions around the world. This session will incorporate both the practical implications for the surveyor and recent scientific developments for geoid modeling.

TS04J: Interactive Session on the Development of the Manual for the “Valuation of Unregistered Lands and Informal Property"
Organiser: Mr. James Kavanagh, United Kingdom

Jointly organised by UN-Habitat/GLTN and FIG.

Following UN-Habitat/GLTN’s guide no. 1/2018, which explains why valuations of unregistered land and informal property are needed, and RICS Research (valuation of unregistered land), UN-Habitat/GLTN is developing a robust, due diligence protocol and manual (including basic checklists and sample formats) on the registration of unregistered lands. This session will be interactive where your expert views can inform a new unregistered land valuation manual that will cover about 70 percent of the land surface of the world. This FIG session will follow on from the initial masterclass held at World Bank Land 2020 and will discuss the preliminary work of the authors, initial concepts that need to be recognised and included and also act as an opportunity to engage the global FIG family of land professionals.

The session will begin with a presentation by Dr. Mike McDermott and Dr. Peter Wyatt, providing an overview of the proposed guide, a report on the World Bank Land 2020 masterclass (and other connected sessions), an open discussion on the format of the GLTN manual and a debate on the changing nature of valuation and its critical interaction with developing world land security, informality and differing forms of tenure.

TS06B: FIG Platinum Member Session - Bentley Systems
-Digital Twins for Flood Mitigation
Organiser: Teresa Elliott, Industry Marketing Director, Bentley Systems
Pascal Martinez, Business Development Director, Digital Cities, Bentley Systems
Rodrigo Fernandes, Senior Consultant, Water Infrastructure, Bentley Systems

From population increases and rapid growth and development in cities to the vulnerability from climate-related forces, cities, land and water authorities have an increasingly important role in protecting and sustaining the environment. And with increasing frequency and intensity of extreme weather events, coupled with rapid urbanization and inadequate drainage - there is a devastating potential for floods, where lives and property are at an enormous risk. Mitigating this threat effectively requires moving from a fragmented perception to an integrated, cross-disciplinary and proactive approach for considering the multiple processes and scales involved, and thus being able to represent current conditions, anticipate changes, and improve decisions resulting in improved environmental sustainability. 4D digital twins can become the common and federating index– bringing together reality meshes, terrain models, imagery, and GIS sources as well as hydrometeorological data to comprehensively model, analyze and simulate floods.

Roundtable Discussion Topics:

  • Creation of digital twins including creation of digital context and continuous updates. How a digital model can be used for prevention through virtual inspection of actual storm water utilities, dams, as well as underwater structure (tetrapods, dykes…).
  • Non-structural mitigation / adaptation measures (such as flood risk maps, flood forecasting and early warning systems, spatial planning / flood risk adapted land use, flood action plans at a local scale) vs. sometimes overestimated and highly engineered traditional structural measures.
  • Water quality-quantity nexus – floods can cause pollution and water scarcity can increase pollutants concentration.
  • Bidirectional communication before and during crises is essential to raise public awareness, reinforce preparedness, minimize outrage, but also for obtaining valuable feedback and insights from the population.
  • Real world examples of flood modeling and simulation at city and site scale.

TS08F: Ending Poverty & Securing Land Rights: the Role & Contribution of Land Administration - SPECIAL SDG SESSION
Commission: 7
Organiser: Mr. Daniel Paez, FIG Commission 7 Chair, Australia

It is clear what land administration professionals have to achieve, but how can we make sure we achieve the goals? In this session the ‘how’ question will be addressed with case-studies, research and project examples.

  • How do we, as surveyors, make sure that the amount of people with tenure security, with legally recognized documentation, is increasing?
  • How do we make sure these recordations are accessible, sustainable and upgradable for the decades to come?
  • How do we make sure that women and vulnerable groups have equal rights to economic resources, as well as access to ownership and control over land?
  • How can we ensure that there is a legal framework (including customary law) to guarantee women’s equal rights to land ownership and/or control?
  • How can Cadastre and Land Registry organisations support the implementation of the SDGs. And how can we monitor the progress?
  • How do we contribute to affordable and clean energy and the sustainable land use to support this?

TS08G: Refinements in Multi-GNSS for Smarter Surveying
Commission: 5
Organiser: Dr. Dan Roman, FIG Commission 5 Chair, United States

It is presently possible to observe upwards of almost 100 satellites at any one time with the numerous GNSS constellations in orbit. With the shear number of observations and the various differences between GNSS systems, the surveyor can obtain better positional accuries in shorter amounts of time. This session will include contributions on a number of new developments in GNSS processing, antenna calibration, and error source mitigation. All of these developments continue to support the overall goal of more accuracy and smarter surveying.
