Sweden hosted the General Assembly 2014, on September 1-4 in Gothenburg.
The Nordic Geodetic Commission – founded in 1953 – is an association of geodesists from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. Its purpose is to give the members possibilities of fruitful gatherings and mutual exchange of professional views and experiences. The NKG is recognized and supported by a number of Nordic organizations, such as the Director Generals of the Nordic Mapping Authorities.
In order to forward its vision, the Commission arranges the General Assembly every four years, and summer schools also every four years, in one of the Nordic countries as the host. NKG is managed by a Presidium and the actual work is done in working groups and working group projects.
The NKG has the following working groups:
- WG of Geodynamics
- WG of Geodetic Infrastructure
- WG of Geoid and Height Systems
- WG of Reference Frames, Positioning and Navigation
