My journey to the 2017 Earth Observation (EO) Summit in Montreal began when I boarded the train and left Union Station in Toronto. During the long train ride I had the chance to think about my aspirations as a geomatics professional. In the future I would like to use my remote sensing and geomatics skills to bring together communities and tackle common problems.  I am a graduate from the University of Toronto and the Fleming GIS Applications Specialist program. The EO Summit was held from June 20 to 22 at UQAM and brought together a number of exceptional remote sensing organizations and events in one place. The summit was bilingual...

En tant que diplômé récent du Fleming GIS programme, j’ai eu la chance d'aller à Montréal pour assister au Sommet sur l'Observation de la Terre 2017 (SOT) avec GoGeomatics. Comme premier événement géospatial, je suis emballé à l’idée d’en apprendre davantage sur ce qui se passe dans le monde de la Télédétection. Je voudrais remercier les organisateurs du Sommet SOT 2017 de m’avoir permis d'être présent. Fin juin vous pourrez lire un article sur mon expérience à SOT 2017. Accueillant plus d’une trois cents  participants, conférenciers et une vingtaine d’exposants, le SOT est un des plus gros événement...

As a recent graduate of the Fleming GIS program I jumped at the chance to attend the Earth Observation (EO) Summit 2017 on behalf of GoGeomatics in Montreal. This will be my first geospatial conference and I'm excited to experience what our community has to offer in Remote Sensing. A big thank you to the organizers of the EO Summit for the opportunity to attend the event and share my thoughts by writing about my experience on the pages of GoGeomatics Canada. After the conference, please follow up with me in late June on the GoGeomatics magazine as I write about my time at the summit. What is the Earth Observation Summit? The...

These days drones are all the rage. Nevertheless, there are other ways to collect data from the sky! Blimps, balloons and kites are alternative was to collecting data or remote-sensing imagery. These are great unconventional solutions for small scale, high resolution projects. Blimps There are three types of airships: rigid, semi-rigid and non-rigid. A rigid airship has a metal skeleton lining the inside of the balloon. The semi-rigid has a keel which runs the length of the ship. While the non-rigid one (better known as a blimp) has a completely soft shell envelope [1] [2]. How Blimps Work? You have probably heard that blimps are...
