The Geomatics Association of Nova Scotia (GANS) is proud to present its 2020 Award of Distinction to a true champion and pioneer of Geographic Information, David MacLean of Bridgetown, Nova Scotia.
David is well-known in the Geomatics community as an instructor at the acclaimed Centre of Geographic Sciences (COGS) in Lawrencetown, Nova Scotia, where he has instructed students primarily in Geographic Information Systems for many years.
David was also widely recognized for his valuable contribution to ‘space photography’, including that time he mapped Chris Hadfield’s collection of Earth photographs from the International Space Station. This endeavor not only sparked a working relationship between Mr. MacLean and Mr. Hadfield, it also garnered him national recognition in MacLean’s magazine.
David is also a current member of the GANS’ board of directors as treasurer, and is celebrating his 15th year as a highly valued member.
