Earlier this year, Secretary of the international Coordinating committee for management of the WH "Struve Geodetic Arc" (P.Tatila, NLS Finland) sent to member countries of the Committee specifications for the coordinates and descriptive data required for conducting a research work initiated by the St. Petersburg SS&M, with the ultimate aim to issue a commemorative booklet dedicated to the 150th anniversary of the publication of the Struve treatise “Arc du Meridien …" (1857). By June 1, required data on principal (astronomic-geodetic) SGA stations had been delivered by the state surveying agencies of Estonia, Finland, Norway, Lithuania and Belarus. Contributions are expected from the agencies of Latvia, Moldova and Ukraine.
