Geomatics in Canada is about to Change: CGCRT Steering Committee Articles
For the past three months, the Steering Committee (SC) of the Canadian Geomatics Community Round Table (CGCRT) has been publishing articles on the CGCRT.ca blog. They have been doing this in the hopes of stirring debate and creating interest in the mission and vision of the CGCRT. Why is this important to us as Canadian geospatial practitioners, students, academics, and businesses? It’s important because these articles, and the CGCRT as a whole, are helping to put together a strategy that is going to set the course for our sector over the next decade. Aren’t you curious about what these people think and how it will affect every aspect of geomatics in Canada? After you know what their thoughts and opinions are, they are hoping that you will let them know what you think! You can do that by emailing them at firstname.lastname@example.org
In case you’ve missed these articles, GoGeomatics Canada is listing them here in order by publication date. Some of these articles have gotten quite a lot of attention, either through the comments at the bottom of the posts themselves or on social media through re-tweets and conversations on LinkedIn.

If you happen to be in Ottawa for Easter, please consider joining GoGeomatics Canada and the CRSS at the University of Ottawa to debate and discuss the National Strategy. You can find more information here.
