We would like to announce that GANS will be hosting Geomatics Atlantic this year in Halifax, November 13th - 16th
We are planning for this to be the biggest cross-sector oceans conference in Atlantic Canada, capitalizing on the current energy and investment in the ocean sector.
Oceans, the largest ecosystem on earth are a vital lifeblood of our planet and mankind. They encompass nearly three quarter of the planet, supplying nearly half our oxygen and contain about 97% of our water. Everyday our oceans face major threats from climate change, pollution, habitat destruction, and a decreases in fish stocks.
This years Geomatics Atlantic theme is Oceans of Data and will be exploring innovation, cutting edge R&D, and the future of geomatics in the marine environment. The term geomatics represents a sector and technology that uses data collected by many different groups and connects many different sectors.
We are reaching out to all researchers, organizations and companies actively working on marine and coastal focused projects. We hope to have a cross-sectorial conference that includes: fisheries & aquaculture, energy & resources, mapping/hydrography, environment characterization, marine spatial planning, climate change, military applications, ocean technology and big data, all connected through geomatics.
For additional Geomatics Atlantic 2018 details; including special key note speakers and conference presentations and more will be available at https://geomatics.one
