The Office of the Surveyor General of the Federation has welcomed the conference attendees with a special tour in its newest site – the Federal Maps Printing Facility. The facility, which its establishment was carried out in whole by Sivan Design, is fully computerized and includes the latest large format printing and cutting machinery. The facility is capable of printing Federal maps issued using FEGIS (Federal Geographic Information System) in a fully automated large format, full color, and high quantities process. FEGIS, an extensive maps production and management system designed by Sivan Design specifically to meet Federation needs, was launched in May and the accomplishment of this modern facility has been only recently achieved.
