Short summary
The paper describes the history of the International Association of Geodesy from its forerunner established in 1862 to the Section of Geodesy of the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics in 1922 and its development to the present. It focusses on five major periods: (1) between the World Wars; (2) re-establishment after World War II; (3) inception of the space age; (4) geodynamic research and scientific services; and (5) the Global Geodetic Observing System (GGOS).
