Northern Ontario GIS Users Event
April 25, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 3:30 pm
URISA Ontario is a non-profit, volunteer community of individuals and organizations who share and innovate in geospatial information knowledge and expertise. With over 1,000 members and associates, URISA Ontario supports professional development through networking opportunities, programs and services. Our goals are to proactively encourage individuals and organizations to participate in the geospatial information community. We recognize excellence and innovation through our award and bursary programs and encourage personal professional development through our various volunteer opportunities.
The event in Thunder Bay will focus on two main areas of interest in the geospatial information community:
The cost of capturing LiDAR and Imagery data has come down rapidly, and there are options for capturing LiDAR and imagery data for small site specific projects or for large land areas. Several presentations at this conference will cover how to capture LiDAR and imagery what to consider and how to use the data. These presentations will be followed by an expert panel question/answer and discussion session
Many effective geospatial solutions depend on field data capture and presenting the information in a user friendly application. These presentations will focus on case studies applying data capture solutions and developing end user applications. These presentations will be followed by an expert panel question/answer and discussion session.
Call for Presentations:
Do you have experience in either of these areas that you would like to share? This conference is an opportunity to share your project, lessons learned and opportunities. The panel discussion period provides an opportunity to collaborate with the geospatial information community.
