Welcome to Pulse
The IOGP Communications Team welcomes you to the February 2021 Pulse edition. This month we want to shed a light on one of our most impressive committees, one not everyone is familiar with: the Geomatics Committee.
We also want to celebrate the first anniversary of our Memorandum of Understanding with the American Petroleum Institute (API) and the Asociación Mexicana de Empresas de Hidrocarburos (AMEXHI) and, finally, we want to learn from you how we could further improve our newsletter.
We wish you a pleasant read.
