What is the IGSM?

The IGSM is the International Geodetic Student Meeting, an annual meeting of geodesy students. The goal of this meeting is to set up contacts between geodesy, cartography, photogrammetry and geoinformatic students world-wide. Furthermore, the IGSM is a platform to present the cultural and professional characteristics of the host city to an international geodetic community. Each year, the IGSM takes place at one of the IGSO member’s university.
