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...

My journey to the 2017 Earth Observation (EO) Summit in Montreal began when I boarded the train and left Union Station in Toronto. During the long train ride I had the chance to think about my aspirations as a geomatics professional. In the future I would like to use my remote sensing and geomatics skills to bring together communities and tackle common problems.  I am a graduate from the University of Toronto and the Fleming GIS Applications Specialist program. The EO Summit was held from June 20 to 22 at UQAM and brought together a number of exceptional remote sensing organizations and events in one place. The summit was bilingual...
One of the benefits of being a contributing writer to GoGeomatics Canada is that I am able to attend, and subsequently write about, events in our community. I'm a Ryerson University Student taking Applied Geography and GIS and being a volunteer writer with GoGeomatics is a great fit. I know that networking is important now for my academic career and in future it will be just as important to my professional career.  With that in mind I decided to attend the Canadian Association of Geographers (CAG) conference held at York University. What is the Canadian Association of Geographers Conference? CAG is a week-long event held from...

As a graduating student from the GIS program at Fleming College I have been looking to attend leading events in the industry to learn more about the GIS sector.  I had heard that URISA Ontario BeSpatial is a great event through GoGeomatics when I joined them as a new contributor. After contacting the organizers of the event I had the chance to go to BeSpatial and am sharing my experience with the community. What is the event all about? BeSpatial is an annual event held by URISA Ontario covering a range of topics related to GIS training, exhibitions and new technologies. At this year’s event there were three main themes: Innovations...
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? We have 12 GoGeomatics networking groups and have hosted 300+ networking events. 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. Our Canadian Spatial Times newsletter has over 7,000 subscribers. The annual Back to School Socials are now on their fourth...

For the last five years, I have annually had the opportunity to spend time in Iqaluit, Canada's fastest growing community in Canada's fastest growing territory or province. On arrival, I check out the selection of new books at Arctic Ventures and the screening of new movies about the North. This year, there was the chance to see John Walker's Passage and to buy a copy of Darrell Varga's book of the same name in the Canadian Cinema series. This hybrid film (fictional non-fiction) describes the search for the Franklin expedition, the role of John Rae and in particular, the Inuit perspective. Unravelling the Franklin Mystery's doomed...

Congress brings together academics, researchers, policy-makers, and practitioners to share findings, refine ideas, and build partnerships that will help shape the Canada of tomorrow. SAGE Publishing is sponsoring a panel at Congress titled “Getting Comfortable with Big Data” from 10:30-noon on Thursday,...
