Smart Cities & Communities: A Canadian Spatial Approach To Efficiency in Nova Scotia

November 26, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm

The Geomatics Association of Nova Scotia (GANS) is hosting an all-day professional development seminar titled, Smart Cities & Communities: A Spatial Approach to Efficiency! Attend this event to learn more about your community’s smart resources and to network with other professionals or prospects in geospatial fields.

WHEN: Tuesday, November 26, 2019 from 9:30am to 4:00pm

WHERE: Halifax Central Library, Spring Garden Road, Halifax (Room 301)



The seminar will inform attendees on how cities and communities in the Maritimes are currently adopting and planning to adopt smart technologies via the Internet of Things (IoT) and spatial systems such as GPS receivers and GIS networks. Professionals that have contributed to such developments will share their experiences with solving work dilemmas through a spatial approach. We are hoping to explore and stimulate discussions on how organizations in different areas, private or public, for-profit or non-profit, are using smart technologies to improve efficiency from a geospatial perspective. You will leave at the end of the day knowing more about the impact that spatial systems have on the efficiency of your community.

Please note that in an attempt to keep the registration fee as low as possible, lunch will not be provided (though there are many terrific pubs and egansgansateries within easy walking distance of the library!). Act fast – space is limited!

For more information, feel free to contact us by email at info@gans.ca.


Interested in speaking? Do you have experience with interconnected smart sensors and / or applying a spatial approach to solve dilemmas in your work? We may also still be in need of presenters and invite you to contact us for more information by emailing info@gans.ca.
