New President of GANS

27 May 2016 4:37 PM | Hugh MacKay (Administrator)

Following the 2016 Annual General Meeting, it is with great enthusiasm that we introduce Ted MacKinnon as the new President of GANS.  

Ted works with Natural Resources Canada as the Senior Geomatics Technologist for the Survey General Branch's Atlantic Regional Office in Amherst. He has been working in the geomatics industry for over 18 years and has a diverse background in various disciplines including GIS, Cartography, LIDAR, Remote Sensing and GPS Surveying. He graduated from the Centre of Geographic Sciences (COGS) with advanced diplomas in both Remote Sensing and Applied Geomatics Research and with a B.Sc. in Geology from Acadia University. Ted has been accredited with GISP status from the GIS Certification Institute (GISCI) as well as Geomatics Specialist in Remote Sensing certification from the Canadian Institute of Geomatics (CIG) and is a fellow with the Royal Canadian Geographical Society.

In 2004 he created GISjobs.ca to help make it easier for the geospatial community to find jobs in the Canadian gematics sector and then shortly later started CanadianGIS.com; an online geospatial resource site that provides people with information on the Canadian geomatics sector. The success of the sites has been contributed to being well connected with the Canadian Geomatics community through social networking and various memberships with other professional organizations. Ted first became a member of GANS in 2004 after receiving the Geomatics Association of Nova Scotia Award at COGS. 

In his remarks at the AGM, Ted expressed that one of his goals this year will be to increase the engagement of the GANS membership at our professional and social events. 

Please drop a line to Ted and congratulate him and offer your support to him as he takes on this exciting new volunteer role on behalf of our community.
