       What a wonderful endorsement ESRI Canada received earlier this week.  Congratulations on being recognized as one of Canada's Best Managed Companies.  Read more Here...

      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.
