GIS Day 2014 at Carleton University – in Pictures
GoGeomatics celebrated GIS Day yesterday at Carleton University in Ottawa, part of the worldwide GIS Day celebrations. We would like to extend a big thank you to the MacOdrum Library‘s Maps, Data and Government Information Centre, as well as the Department of Geography & Environmental Studies for inviting us to participate in their 16th annual event.
We had the chance to meet some passionate geomatics students at our resume clinic, visit our fellow exhibitors’ booths, listen to some engaging speakers, and try out some seriously cool tech. For those of you who weren’t able to stop by our resume clinic, you can register for our upcoming Career Seminar to optimize your geomatics job search. Come to our next Ottawa social to get a coupon code for $10 off your registration!
Take a look at a recap of the day in photos:
