History

June 1956, Bagnères-de-Bigorre (France), at 8th meeting of the Executive Committee of International Council for Science (ICSU), as Federation of Astronomical and Geophysical Services -- Fédération des services d'astronomie et de géophysique, to carry out the Permanent Services previously organized by International Astronomical Union (IAU), International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG) and International Union of Radio Science (URSI). As of end 2008, ceased to exist. Functions of FAGS, and those of the World Data Centre are planned for merger by ICSU into ISC World Data System (ISC-WDS).

Aims

Through allocation of financial support and in other appropriate ways, encourage establishment and operation of international services for the compilation and analysis of observational data likely to be of long-term value in astronomy, geophysics and related sciences.
