Jonathan Murphy is Facilitating the Alberta Geomatics Education Symposium

As the first stop on his three-city Western Canada tour, Jonathan Murphy of GoGeomatics Canada is stopping off in Calgary to facilitate the Alberta Geomatics Group’s (AGG) Geomatics Education Symposium, taking place May 22.

Jonathan Murphy GoGeomatics

Jonathan has over 15 years’ experience in geomatics, renewable energy, archaeology, business development, communications, and marketing. He received his BA in Archaeology at the University of Calgary and his geomatics training at the Centre of Geographic Sciences (COGS). Jonathan has written extensively on issues relating to education and geomatics in Canada. Recently, he was made a fellow of the Royal Canadian Geographic Society in recognition of his work. Jonathan is the founder of the award-winning GoGeomatics Canada website and continues to run GoGeomatics as the Managing Director. “I’m very much looking forward to this experience,” Jonathan says. “I’m hoping to walk away with a much clearer understanding of the needs of the Alberta geomatics community, so that I’m able to help out in any way I can.”

The goal of the Geomatics Education Symposium, sponsored by TECTERRA, is to gain insight into the current state of the industry. The event will include panel discussions, presentations, and round table brainstorming. The AGG aims to create a dialogue between industry partners and educational institutions to help meet the particular challenges of the industry, and strengthen it for the future.

This event will coincide with the AGG GoGeomatics Calgary May Social, sponsored by the AGG. The social will be taking place the same evening, May 22nd at 6:00 at the Libertine Public House (#223 – 8th Ave SW). It’ll be a great chance to discuss the ideas brought up at the Symposium over a drink with Jon, and enjoy some free snacks with the rest of the group!

The following week, Jonathan will be hosting the first ever GoGeomatics Edmonton Social on Tuesday May 27th. Then it’s off to Vancouver on Thursday May 29th for the Vancouver GoGeomatics Social.
