IGSO’s association is made up of the following institutions:

  • The auditors of account.

IGSM, the geodetic event of the year

The IGSM is a gathering of university students and alumni at an international level, with studies related to geodesy, cartography and geomatics engineering, or similar.

Every year this event is held in a different country. In 2023 this meeting will take place at the Polytechnic University of Valencia, whose students from the Bachelor’s Degree in Geomatics Engineering and Topography and Master’s Degree in Geomatics Engineering and Geoinformation are the main organisers of the event.

The meeting welcomes more than 100 geodesy students from different nationalities and around 20 seniors who will live together and be part of different activities, conferences, workshops, sightseeing tours and sporting activities planned for them.
