The General Assembly of the Council of European Geodetic Surveyors (CLGE) was held on May 12-13, 2023 in Oradea (Romania), during which the CLGE Executive Board unanimously approved the membership of the State Service of Ukraine for Geodesy, Cartography, and Cadastre (StateGeoCadastre).
Deputy Head of the StateGeoCadastre Dmytro Makarenko joined the event online with a presentation “StateGeoCadastre: Key achievements and challenges”. In particular, the participants of the General Assembly were informed about the activities of the StateGeoCadastre during the period of martial law, the implementation of a pilot project on the development of the geoportal of the national geospatial data infrastructure and user verification on the geoportal, the status of updating the cartographic base in Ukraine, as well as the creation of the State Cartographic and Geodetic Fund of Ukraine in electronic format.
The panel discussions focused on the challenges facing professional surveyors and the industry during the pandemic and after February 24, 2022. Dmytro Makarenko emphasised that high-quality geospatial data was a necessary tool for rebuilding the country and accelerating the recovery from natural and man-made disasters.
CLGE was established in 1962 under the International Federation of Surveyors. The association unites professional surveyors across Europe and promotes the interests of the surveying industry in both the public and private sectors.
The Executive Board of CLGE has decided that for the period of martial law and reconstruction in Ukraine, the StateGeoCadastre will not have to pay membership fees to CLGE.
