Abstract.Geodesy, by definition, requires international collaboration on a global scale. An organized cooperation started in 1862, and has become today’s International Association of Geodesy (IAG). The roots of modern geodesy in the 18th century, with arc measurements in several parts of the world, and national geodetic surveys in France and Great Britain, are explained. The manifold local enterprises in central Europe, which happened in the first half of the 19th century, are described in some… 
From a Regional Project to an International Organization: The “Baeyer-Helmert-Era” of the International Association of Geodesy 1862–1916
The following paper describes the first epoch of organized international collaboration in geodesy, which started about 150 years ago and finally led to today’s “International Association of Geodesy”.
The International Association of Geodesy: from an ideal sphere to an irregular body subjected to global change
Abstract. The history of geodesy can be traced back to Thales of Miletus (∼600 BC), who developed the concept of geometry, i.e. the measurement of the Earth. Eratosthenes (276–195 BC) recognized the
