With the end of 2003 the Austrian geodesy is able to look back to a tradition of 140 years of cooperation with international organisations. In that time the Austrian Geodetic Commission (ÖGK) and its predecessors initiated and participated in international projects in Austria and represented our country successfully. Therefore the following sketch of the history of the ÖGK logically includes many aspects of the development of geodesy from the point of view of Austria.
