GIS Days 2021 by Western University
Western University will bring their annual GIS days online next week on November 15 – 19, 2021, from 9:30am to 4:30 pm Eastern Standard Time via Zoom. It is a great opportunity to explore how latest geospatial technologies and GIS applications contribute to our real-world projects through sessions of lighting talks, demonstrations and tutorials. Each session includes a Q&A period for attendees to learn more about the topics.
Lighting talks are 7-minute presentations that briefly introduce a general geospatial topic, including industry visions, new applications and case studies. The teasers are suitable from GIS beginners to experts in the field.
Demonstrations are 15-minute sessions with an interactive component with audiences. Speakers will share their thoughts about industry phenomena, latest technological innovations and tips for creating map applications with us. Attendees can refresh practical knowledge about these subjects.
Tutorials are 30-minute to 1-hour workshops that illustrate workflows of a specific software or an application in depth. Audiences will learn advanced knowledge about a specific geospatial topic.
There is a geography-themed trivia event on Nov 17, with an opportunity to win prizes. Please feel free to join.
GIS Days is your chance to:
- Explore the world of digital maps and GIS through short, 7-minute lightning talks.
- Discover how to take advantage of mapping technology in your research, education, or for your next job interview by attending one of the demonstrations or tutorials.
The GoGeomatics team will have two presentations this year:
Nov 16 – 12:30pm: Careers in Canada’s GIS and remote sensing sector
Jonathan Murphy, Managing Director of GoGeomatics, will discuss career opportunities in Canada’s GIS and remote sensing sector. It will be useful for job seekers who want to achieve a new career milestone in the industry.
Nov 18 – 9:30am: How GIS applications help us to rethink our relationship with the nature
Leo Poon is one of the volunteers from the GoGeomatics team. He will briefly summarize geospatial news chosen for GoGeomatics’ weekly digest, and explore how GIS applications remind us about human influence on natural landscape.
