ASPRS Approves Edition 2 of the ASPRS Positional Accuracy Standards for Digital Geospatial Data

The Faroese Environment Agency has become the latest organisation to join EuroGeographics, which represents the European National Mapping, Cadastral and Land Registration Authorities (NMCAs).

Members approved the Agency’s application for associate membership at their 2024 General Assembly hosted by the National Geographic Institute, Spain and supported by General Directorate for the Cadastre. The event was attended by 115 delegates from 37 countries.

Dr Sigurð í Jákupsstovu, Director General, Faroese Environment Agency, said: “Attending EuroGeographics 2023 General Assembly and the workshop on the challenges and opportunities facing smaller NMCAs, convinced us of the value of membership. We already participate in Nordic collaboration and we look forward to extending our activities to include pan-European cooperation.”

Sallie Payne Snell, Secretary General and Executive Director, EuroGeographics, added: “It is a privilege to represent official providers of the trusted geospatial information that is fundamental to the everyday lives of people across Europe. We are delighted to welcome the Faroese Environment Agency to the Association.”

“Our collaborative approach to using collective expertise across national boundaries is one of EuroGeographics’ primary strengths. We look forward to working with Dr Jákupsstovu and his colleagues as we continue to focus enabling access to members’ data and expertise for the public good.”

The Faroese Environment Agency is responsible for all national mapping activities, including land mapping and hydrographic surveying, and is also the national authority for Cadastre and Land Registration.

EuroGeographics is an international not-for-profit organisation (AISBL/ IVZW under Belgian Law. BCE registration: 833 607 112) and the membership association for the European National Mapping, Cadastral and Land Registry Authorities.
