The NCG (Netherlands Geodetic Commission) co-ordinates and initiates fundamental and strategic research in geodesy and geo-information in the Netherlands. The NCG advises on general policy issues related to geodesy and geo-information, stimulates the spread knowledge in these fields and co-ordinates the geodetic infrastructure of the Netherlands.
The NCG consists of the Commission, subcommissions, the Board and the Office. The Office is located in Delft.
To promote and to make visible geodetic research in the Netherlands the NCG in 1998 has founded the Prof. J.M. Tienstra Research Prize.

The research may be referring to the whole geodetic field and related fields as represented in...
The NCG was until 1-1-2014 an institute of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW). Since 1-1-2014 the Netherlands Geodetic Commission is a foundation called "Netherlands Center for Geodesy and Geo-Informatics" (NCG).
The NCG consists of the Commissions, the Board, a Platform of Geobusiness, universities and government institutions, and the Office. About 60 people from universities, institutes, governmental departments and companies are involved with the work of the NCG. The Office of the NCG, located in Amersfoort, supports this work.
The NCG is the adhering body for the Netherlands of the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG). In the IUGG international organisations of the disciplines geophysics, geodesy, geomagnetism, aeronomy, hydrology, meteorology, atmospheric sciences, physical sciences of the oceans, seismology and volcanology are...
