Great turnout at GoGeomatics October GIS & Jobs Event

This month’s GoGeomatics social meeting was held in conjunction with The National Capital GIS Group at the Clock Tower Brew Pub on Bank St. in Ottawa. A great turnout of close to thirty people were in attendance, bringing together those in the industry, entrepreneurs, small businesses, students and those looking for work. See below for more about those present.

This was a excellent networking opportunity and a chance to see what else is going on in the Geomatics world. Having a mixture of those already in the industry and those looking to get into Geomatics made for lively discussion.

Join us next month for a trip to the Cantley receiving station on November 16th.

We will visit MDA and the Canadian Centre for Remote Sensing on GIS day for a tour of the facility. This is a free event and a must see for any remote sensing enthusiasts. Keep a look out on GoGeomatics for further details or follow us on twitter. If you wish to attend the tour please email jmurphy@gogeomatics.net to RSVP.

A special thanks goes out to Jonathan Bailey of SpatialBridge, and Dennis Nazarenko of Cardinalus for organizing the event. Another thank you to Jean-François Dionne of WESA for providing refreshments.
