The 3rd International Geological Congress (IGC) was held in Berlin (Germany) in 1885. The program focused on four subjects: unifying the representation of European geology, standardizing geological nomenclature, establishing criteria for mineralogical and paleontological nomenclature, and scientific communications and the lastest progress in Geology. During the Congress important discussions about geological representations and terminology took place.
