Pagination or Media Count:
United States objectives in Latin America have been frustrated by mismanagement and misunderstanding in spite of continued application of U. S. resources. In contrast the Inter American Geodetic Survey has made solid progress toward engineering achievement and hemispheric solidarity since 1946. Official and technical documents are reviewed for keys to the concept of operation, and the organizational arrangements that have permitted this progress to continue in an uncertain international climate. Technical accomplishments are reviewed briefly. Adaptation to individual country requirements within an overall program, realistic long range goals, continuity of management, and emphasis on development of Latin American capabilities are singled out as major elements in LAGS performance, and are suggested for application to parallel programs.
