Knowledge Exchange

Maintaining a network that helps members to improve capabilities and role

EuroGeographics members place tremendous value on collaborating to find solutions to common challenges. This willingness to share experiences and best practice is central to the success of our knowledge exchange activities. Our networks provide an open forum for discussing issues of mutual interest. Each focuses on an area of particular interest for National Mapping, Cadastre and Land Registry Authorities:

The KENs organise a comprehensive calendar of annual events, including webinars, workshops and conferences, and also issue a range of publications such as the results of research, policy papers and best practice guidelines.

CLRKEN
Cadastre and Land Registry

The purpose of this KEN is to help meet user needs for cadastral information at both national and European level.

INSPIRE KEN

PolKEN
Policy

This KEN tracks, evaluates and constructively participates in the development of relevant European initiatives, programmes and policies.

QKEN

Positioning Forum

The Positioning Forum (previously POS KEN) provides a forum for discussion between organisations which each represent a different GNSS market segment.

State Boundaries of Europe Forum

The State Boundaries of Europe (SBE) Forum aims to deliver boundary-related information from harmonised cross-border national geospatial data.

Members Webinar Series

A new webinar series in partnership with EuroSDR to keep members connected, share knowledge and provide new learning opportunities.

Struve Geodetic Arc

The Struve Geodetic Arc is a triangulation measurement chain covering Norway, Sweden, Finland, Russia, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Belarus, Ukraine and Moldavia.

Participation by non-members

We also pursue joint activities with other associations working in the field of mapping, cadastre and land information. These partnerships complement and add to the development of our KEN activities, bringing greater opportunities for professional development. Whilst EuroGeographics’ KENs are provided principally for the benefit of members, KEN Chairs can invite other participants who, in their judgement, can add value to activities.
