GoGeomatics Kelowna: September Success & October Social With Talk from Esri Canada

GoGeomatics Kelowna’s first Back-to-School September social was a huge success!    Among the attendees were a great group from Stantec, our local Kelowna GoGeomatics sponsor, and 2 members of Esri Canada, our nation-wide GoGeomatics sponsor.   Other attendees included several students from UBC-Okanagan, as well as GIS professionals both working and looking for work in GIS. kelowna_2016_btss_gogeomatics_1

Several activities took place during Kelowna’s September social.  Everyone enjoyed a good round of free appetizers, and most attendees enjoyed beer or wine from the Mission Tap House and Grill pub.  There were several door prizes drawn for GoGeomatics T-shirts as well as a couple of books on web GIS.  Many free items were also available for the taking, including company swag from Stantec and Esri Mapbooks.

Next Kelowna GoGeomatics Social:

GoGeomatics Kelowna’s October social is coming up on Thursday, October 20th at 6 pm in the banquet room of the Creekside Pub & Grill, located at 3929 Lakeshore Rd., in Kelowna.  There will be a presentation from guest speaker Dan Mallett of Esri Canada.  Here is a synopsis of his presentation, called “Essential Patterns of a Location Strategy”:

“The essential patterns describe common geospatial functions that re‐occur across various organizational business models and environments.  Patterns include location enablement, constituent engagement, decision support, field mobility, analytics, and location data management.  These patterns offer organizations a categorical framework for tracking both current and future GIS utilization in a business context. “

We are looking forward to another opportunity to network and mingle with other members of the geomatics community!  Hope to see you at our October social!
