    Interesting article posted by GoGeomatics about missed opportunities in Canadian geomatics.  Even more interesting will be what we take from these missed opportunities and how we move forward.  GANS wants to help... how?  Who writes the article on future opportunities in Canadian geomatics?

      A great big hand goes to our other sponsors too.  Gateway Geomatics had a World Wind  announcement of their own last fall. 

      We live in a unique part of the world, and its no surprise that our industry, and members still play an important role as world class leaders in cutting edge technology.
