Geography Helped Me Get Where I am Now
With the guidance from my geography teacher, upon graduation of High School, I decided to attend the NSCC Centre of Geographic Sciences (COGS) in Lawrencetown, Nova Scotia.
Following graduation at UNB I took full time employment with Fugro GeoSurveys in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. Since that time I have been exposed to a large variety of offshore and onshore projects throughout Canada and the World. These jobs have ranged from positioning ROVs and structures using sub-sea acoustic systems, positioning offshore oil rigs with satellite based positioning system, to 3-D modelling and mapping of bridges and structures with laser based systems. The Geomatics field is continually changing as newer and greater technologies are developed by both the industry and experiences we have in the field.
