The Best GIS Education Programs in the World are in Canada
In honour of the 5th annual Back to School GoGeomatics Socials, we are going back to our roots. Some of the earliest articles in our magazine were interviews with GIS, geomatics and cartography instructors across Canada. Six years ago we learned about their programs and what they taught.
Canada is the birthplace of GIS and a large part of the underlying geomatics technology used world wide today. So it’s no surprise you can find find the best GIS education programs in Canada.
So we’re doing it again and have reached out to over 15 of the very best GIS and geomatics programs in Canada to find out what their programs are like and what makes them special today. These interviews will provide an unparalleled look into the core of Canadian geospatial education.
We will roll out the interviews on an ongoing basis over the coming months. You can find each one in our Canadian Spatial Times newsletter as we publish each week.
