    On July 7, 2017 a series of devastating wildfires began in the Cariboo region of British Columbia. The effects of these wildfires will take much time and many resources to make recovery. GIS can have an important role in such a project. GIS can: Help managers to make real time decisions in rapidly changing conditions Provide spatial information to the public Feed data to fire-fighters in the field through mobile devices Identify damage and help plan for recovery One useful tool that GIS provides is a swipe map. This map shows one area in two maps side by side. One side represents the “before” scene of an event such as a...

    I don't go to many conferences during the year, but the June 2017 Earth Observation (EO) Summit in Montreal is one I'm glad I attended. This was a special geomatics event that brought together practitioners, stakeholders, and students on the campus of the L'Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM). GoGeomatics went to cover the event and we will have a full article detailing some of the presenters and talks shortly.  In the mean time I've put together a photo gallery of the conference and some quotes from the participants. "One of the conference highlights was getting to see and hear about the work of the newest generation of...

    Access to timely and quality health care is an important determinant of health and well-being. Despite universal health coverage in Canada, there exists socio-demographic, financial and physical geographic barriers that limit the accessibility to health care resulting in health disparities across the population. The ability to link administrative health and census data to small or large geographic areas facilitates the study of such health disparities and can provide guidance for overarching policy and/or targeted intervention. A great example of this can be found in a research article entitled Spatial Accessibility to Health Care...
    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...
