Updated 2013 Canadian Geomatics Conferences & Events: GIS, Remote Sensing, Surveying

We decided to update our list of events and conferences that might be of interest to the geomatics community for 2013 so here it is.

Conferences and geomatics events are good for your career health. Geomatics technology is constantly changing and it behooves us all to keep our skills up to date. Other good reasons to attend events are to network and get a feel for where our discipline is going; not to mention gauge the health of our industry first hand. Keep an eye on who the exhibitors are and the sponsors. Healthy growing geomatics companies and organizations support events in our industry.

April 2013

IEEE Radar Conference: The Arctic – The New Frontier

These are exciting times for remote sensing research and applications in Canada. The recent commitment of funding to launch the RADARSAT Constellation will mean a continued Canadian imaging microwave presence in space. Canadians are leaders in the development of airborne active and passive sensor technologies. We are also on the cusp of multisensor UAV platform development that promises to revolutionize high resolution data acquisition and research. Applications from marine, arctic and northern surveillance, environmental modelling and monitoring, and resource exploration are also coming of age. It is our hope that the meetings here will facilitate an exploration of ideas and forge productive partnerships.
