Upcoming Geomatics Related Events

Below is the GANS geomatics related events calendar. In addition to posting the numerous events that GANS hosts every month, we have also included other geomatics related events in Atlantic Canada that we think may be of possible interest to the geospatial community. 

If you know of any events that we have not included below, then feel free to share that info with us and we will include it in the GANS geomatics related events calendar.

You can also switch the calendar view below into a list of events, if you prefer to view them that way (using links below).

    Open Source Data and Software for Geospatial Professionals

    The amount of geospatial data produced by the geospatial community grows exponentially everyday ...
     
    Open Data is defined as structured data that is machine-readable, freely shared, used and built on without restrictions.

    Open and unrestricted access to data for public interest purposes, particularly statistical, scientific, geographical, and environmental information, maximizes its use and value, and the reuse of existing data in commercial applications improves time-to-market for businesses.

    In 2009, Open Data started to appear all over the web, with various governments, announcing new initiatives towards opening up public information. In 2011, the Government of Canada launched the Open Data Portal, to support the delivery of Federal Government data in machine-readable formats.

    Open source software provides scalable solutions that can help avoid licensing costs, can be customized for particular requirements, and comes with support from a large geospatial developer community.


    Join us for a day featured around Open Source Data and Software. Most people in the geomatics sector are aware of it or have heard about it, yet many people still do not take advantage of it. 

    "Intended to be a low-moderate level introduction to Open Source, with professionals at the end of the day leaving more knowledgeable about how they can use open source in their professions, and have some tools to use and find appropriate software or data to get them started."

    Some of the topics covered will include: GITHUB, QGIS, Open DATA (Imagery & vector), the Provincial Elevation Database and much more.   
      
       
    A more detailed Schedule will be added soon ...
