The Breaking News Last year, the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists announced that a year prior, one of their members (Süddeutsche Zeitung) had been sent the contents of a massive leak from the Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca. This leak revealed that for years the firm had been helping people and companies all around the world avoid taxes by channeling wealth through overseas shell companies, most notably in the British Virgin Islands and Bahamas. The clients came from over 100 countries, including Canada. CBC and the Toronto Star are the two Canadian members of the ICIJ and both produced some stories in the...
A team of really intelligent squirrels and I have been working on the new GoGeomatics magazine. I'm taking a break from the work, and the squirrels, to get nostalgic about how GoGeomatics Canada got to where we are. What is GoGeomatics today?

On the magazine we are close to publishing our one thousandth Canadian geomatics article.  We've worked with over a hundred Canadian geomatics organizations posting their jobs, news and events.

Recently, I read an article about the Canadian Geospatial Data Infrastructure (CGDI) that seeks to explain why the CGDI, among many things, is relevant. While the Canada Centre for Mapping and Earth Observation (CCMEO) who is in charge of the CGDI have updated it to reflect changes to the Government of Canada's own Open Data infrastructure, the CCMEO only offers a small glimpse of what's on offer for Geospatial Open Data in Canada. Right now,  there are few resources discussing the various open data offerings covering Canada. Of the few that exist many are either poorly engineered, out of date, or sometimes both.  I’m providing a...
