Announcing the First Nelson, BC GoGeomatics Social

GoGeomatics Canada is pleased to announce the first Nelson GoGeomatics Social!

This casual networking event is taking place Tuesday, May 26, 6PM at Mike’s Place Pub – 422 Vernon Street. We’re very excited to welcome everyone in the Nelson area to the GoGeomatics community. Please RSVP to info@gogeomatics.ca to let us know you’re attending.


“The Kootenays have been recognized as a hub of GIS activity since 2003, when Selkirk College was awarded a Canada Foundation for Innovation grant to establish the Selkirk Geospatial Research Centre (SGRC),” explains Ian Parfitt, Social Group Leader and SGRC Coordinator. “As Kootenay GISers, we all share a passion for GIS and for this incredible part of the country, so it will be a blast to get together and tell tales of python scripting, the latest greatest dataset, or just find some new people to go riding, skiing, climbing, hiking, paddling, or bird watching with.”

GoGeomatics holds socials monthly in cities across Canada to bring members of the geomatics community together. They are casual, free networking events for anyone with an interest in geomatics, at any point in their careers – from students and young people, to entrepreneurs and seasoned professionals. You never know who you’ll meet! We encourage everyone to bring along friends and colleagues as well.

At a GoGeomatics Social, you can expect to chat about GIS, remote sensing, or surveying with others in the industry. It’s a great opportunity to learn about new projects and technologies, hear about job opportunities, and just have a fun night out.

To get on our mailing list to receive regular reminders and updates about socials and events happening in Nelson, please email info@gogeomatics.ca.
