NCG continues as Netherlands Center for Geodesy and Geo-informatics (NCG)

From 1 January 2014 on the NCG continues her work under the name Netherlands Center for Geodesy and Geo-informatics (NCG). So decided the Netherlands Geodetic Commission during her meeting on 5 June 2013. Within the NCG representatives of science and practice are consulting about transfer and development of knowledge and research on geodesy and geo-informatics. The NCG gives advice on this area, also on the policy on geo-information of the government, and carries out strategic studies on the development of the field and initiates research.

The reason for this step is the decision of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) that from 1 January 2014 the NCG on is not anymore a part of her organisation. To continue the work of the NCG independently the Foundation Netherlands Center for Geodesy and Geo-informatics (Stichting Nederlands Centrum voor Geodesie en Geo-informatica) will be founded.

Within the NCG about 80 scientists and representatives from practice are working together. Organisations as the Delft University of Technology, the University of Twente, Wageningen University, Utrecht University, Rijkswaterstaat, the Netherlands' Cadastre, Land Registry and Mapping Agency, the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute (KNMI), the Hydrographic Service of the Royal Netherlands Navy, TNO, Netherlands Space Office, GeoBusiness Nederland and Geonovum are working together.
