FIG Working Week 2017: Call for Papers The overall theme of the FIG Working Week 2017 – to be held in Helsinki, Finland, from 29 May to 2 June – is ‘Surveying the world of tomorrow – from digitalisation to augmented reality’. FIG is witnessing the first beginning of a development leading towards services which not only describe the visible world around us, but also simultaneously bring up other information connected to our place of interest. One step is to become digitalised and to use the digital information; the next step is to combine information and be able to collect the data intelligently and to take further steps into the intelligent use of digital information. This year’s theme was chosen to highlight the opportunities and open a view into a future where the information we produce is, again, put to more efficient use. The FIG Working Week 2017 is the main event of the year for all ten FIG technical Commissions. Therefore proposals for papers are requested in all topics of interest of the various Commissions. http://bit.ly/2ciK5KJ
