The Trustees of Survey Review Ltd are pleased to announce a biennial prize of €2000 for the best paper submitted for presentation at the Congress/ Working Week of the International Federation of Surveyors (FIG). Future awards will be limited to submissions from authors who fulfil the FIG definition of a Young Surveyor.

The trustees hope that this award will encourage the submission of high-quality papers to the FIG Congress and to Survey Review. This move is a pleasing development of an existing relationship with FIG, in which refereed papers presented at FIG Congresses or Working Weeks have been published in the journal.

FIG is the premier international organisation representing the interests of surveyors worldwide. It is a federation of the national member associations and covers the whole range of professional fields within the global surveying, geomatics, geodesy and geo-information community. It provides an international forum for discussion and development aiming to promote professional practice and standards.

Following the non-award of of the prize for a paper in 2021 (deferred from 2020) and receiving two worthy entrants, the Editorial Board of Survey Review decided to award two prizes in 2024.

The first of the 2024 winners, judged by the Editorial Board of Survey Review, are Peter Bauer, Caroline Schönberger and Werner Lienhart for their paper "Interactive planning of GNSS monitoring applications with virtual reality"

The second 2024 winners are Markus Schaffert and Torge Steensen for their paper "Demographic transition in aging neighbourhoods: a GIS-based analysis from Germany's countryside"

The Survey Review Biennial Prizes for 2024 of €2000 each were awarded at the FIG Congress in Accra, Ghana.

The winning articles are currently free to access.
