Everyone is welcome, from all areas of geomatics – from GIS, to remote sensing, to surveying, to cartography, to GIS enthusiasts. If you are involved in location technology you are invited.

This fun free networking event will be an opportunity for people in the community to develop new relationships, learn more about current activities, technologies and success stories, and gain insight into the many advanced applications in Canada’s most advanced hi-tech region.
