The UN-GGIM Subcommittee on Geodesy is working towards developing an accurate and sustainable Global Geodetic Reference Frame (GGRF). The Subcommittee’s Focus Group on Education, Training, and Capacity Building is tasked with assisting UN Member States build their capacity and expertise for the worldwide development of the GGRF. By assessing the current and future competency requirements of each Member State, we will be able to focus our efforts on helping build targeted training and developing competency that will benefit each Member State, as well as filling critical needs for the GGRF.
This survey is designed to assess UN Member State Reference Frame competency requirements and educational needs. We hope to receive feedback from each Member State’s UN-GGIM Head of Delegation, as well as national agency representatives, decision-makers, and leaders of the geodetic communities in each State.
Your participation in this questionnaire will help the Subcommittee to understand your:1. current competencies in Reference Frames;2. future competencies and special interests that you require; and 3. understand your training needs. Please feel free to forward this survey to other people who may wish to contribute.
The questionnaire is divided into 4 sections:1. Information about the responder and his or her affiliation2. Responder’s assessment of current and future Reference Frame competency requirements of his or her Member State3. Member State training needs 4. Other information
We ask that you please complete this short questionnaire by 27 July 2018.
Your participation is important for the UN to support the development of a GGRF.
