On May 24-25, 2004, the Jubilee International Scientific and Technical Conference devoted to the 225th anniversary of MIIGAiK (Moscow State University for Geodesy and Cartography) took place in Moscow, Russia.
This Conference was titled "Geodesy, Cartography, Cadastre in the service of Russia"
Scientific and Technical presentations in the following fields were made:
- Geodesy and Cartography Development in Russia
- Academic and Methodology Problems of Further Development of Cartography and Geodesy Education
- Modern Methods for Cartographic and Surveying Work
- Earth Aero and Space Remote Sensing Methods and Photogrammetry
- Cartographic and Surveying Support for Land and Property Cadastre, Urban Cadastre
- Geoinformation Systems (GIS) in Surveying, Cartography and Cadastre
- Optical and Optoelectronic Measuring Devices and Complexes
- Humanitarian and Social Problems of Geodetic Education Development
