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.

    GIS-Driven real estate analysis: A local case study of applied geomatics

    At its core, real estate analysis is a spatial science, and thus a source of opportunity for GIS professionals. This presentation provides a local case study where GIS technology has been blended with real estate appraisal techniques to create a unique, customised analytical tool: an "Accelerated Valuation Model". What began as a student project has evolved into a flexible tool used in many interesting and unconventional consulting assignments, ranging from demand analysis to heritage property studies. This presentation will include an overview of the GIS tools used in the model alongside local case studies of its use.

    James is a COGS graduate and consultant/GIS specialist with Turner Drake & Partners Ltd. in Halifax, NS.

    The Canadian Cartographic Association (CCA) invites you to the 43rd CCA Conference at the Centre of Geographic Sciences (COGS), Lawrencetown, Nova Scotia from Wednesday, May 30 – Saturday, June 2, 2018. 

    This year’s conference theme “Community Mapping – Place Making Through Maps offers a forum for sharing place-based knowledge and placing it alongside a broader scientific context. As in other parts of Canada, we can all benefit from ‘two eyed seeing’. (Maher, 2017) Read more about Bob Maher’s community mapping vision at his blog Ernest Blair Experiment.

    This four day event will kick off with technical sessions and icebreakers followed by two days of presentations, CCA meetings, orienteering event, dinner with flavors from the Annapolis Valley, and opportunity to tour Grand-Pré and local wine region.

    Keynote speakers include Dr. Michael Goodchild, Emeritus Professor of Geography, UCSB, Marcel Morin – Lost Art Cartography and COGS alumni Edie Punt and Clint Loveman from ESRI, Redlands.

    CCA is a passionate group promoting interest in maps and cartographic material and creating opportunities to network and share ideas. We look forward to seeing you at COGS in May.
