Geomatics incorporates a wide range of spatially related disciplines including cartography , geodesy, remote sensing, surveying, photogrammetry, satellite positioning and geographic information systems (GIS) , all of which can be brought together to help provide a thorough understandable depiction of the human and physical world. To have a successful career in geomatics one must build upon a solid foundation starting with geographic education.
The Geomatics Association of Nova Scotia recognizes the importance of geographic education and the significant role that it plays in a young geomatics professional’s career. Therefore we have created this section of the website to promote and highlight geographic education programs and geospatial related career opportunities in Nova Scotia.
Geographic Education and Geospatial Career Resources
The GANS Geographic Education Posters were created to help young people identify some of the endless possibilities that learning geography provides, by highlighting the various different geography related post-secondary education programs and geospatial related career opportunities available.
All the professionals featured here are graduates of Nova Scotia high schools and have followed a variety of post-secondary paths, including both colleges and universities, to get where they are today. - Geography Matters!
The custom designed posters were professionally printed and sent to the corresponding high school that the featured professional graduated from. Clicking an image below will open up a dedicated page for the individual with a larger digital PDF version of the poster and a summary of the person’s post-secondary path, and his/her present job.
We will be adding more images and narratives about other Nova Scotians’ geospatial careers in the future, so please check back.
