Geodesy Section

Geodesy is the science of accurately measuring and understanding three fundamental properties of the Earth: its geometric shape, its orientation in space, and its gravity field — as well as the changes of these properties with time. The CGU Geodesy Section was formed in 2002, and aims to:

Advance and Promote

geodesy in Canada in support of scientific, environmental, economic, and social activities


its links with national and international associations and institutes


timely communication and dissemination of geodetic results through conferences, workshops and special meetings
