Getting Ready for the 2016 GoGeomatics Back to School Socials

The GoGeomatics Canada Community had a terrific set of socials last season.  We get together each month over drinks, from September to May, and network in many cities across Canada  (See list below).  Last year our geospatial networking season started with our very successful September 2015 Back to School Socials.  We had hundreds of members of the community come out and meet new and returning geospatial students across Canada.  A big thank you to our group leaders who made these events so good.  Our Back to School socials have become a bit of a Canadian geomatics tradition now, and we will be having our third set of the same this coming September.  We have our dates below and the links will take you to the pages for the groups that have them ready.Calgary 2015 GoGeomatics Social

For the last five years, I have annually had the opportunity to spend time in Iqaluit, Canada’s fastest growing community in Canada’s fastest growing territory or province. On arrival, I check out the selection of new books at Arctic Ventures and the screening of new movies about the North. This year, there was the chance to see John Walker’s Passage and to buy a copy of Darrel Varga’s book of the same name in the Canadian Cinema series.
