Canadian GIS & Geomatics Geospatial Resources

The Canadian Geospatial Directory is like a hub of information that provides users a central place to locate businesses and organizations that offer geospatial services within the Canadian Geomatics Sector. Our database now includes over 1000 Canadian listings ranging from Geographic Information System (GIS) services and remote sensing to surveying and planning.

The geospatial directory is another free service that we offer in order to help people better understand the Canadian Geomatics Sector. If your company, association or organization has not yet been added then why not the Canadian Geomatics Sector out by adding your details to the directory.

A major part of any geomatics project is the spatial data involved & these days there are plenty of great resources available.

The Canadian GIS & Geomatics Data section was created to help you find the Canadian data that you need in your geospatial projects and also promotes the really good ones.

We now has over 100 different sources of Canadian geospatial data listed (from Newfoundland to BC ...) and continue to add more Canadian data sources.

The geospatial conference and events section provides users an easy way to locate any of the upcoming conference and events that are related to geomatics in Canada.

It is a community driven section with no charge to add details of your conference or geomatics event. To find an event near you, simply use the search tool found along the right hand side of the site or check the various geospatial conference and event categories.

We know how hard it can be to find geomatics jobs in Canada so started our own Canadian GIS & Geomatics Job site back in 2004 to help users find Canadian geomatics jobs. GISjobs.ca includes much then just GIS jobs and allows job seekers to add resumes for free, create custom job alerts and contains geo jobs from coast to coast.

We understand that our site will not have all the available geomatics jobs in Canada so have also created a Geomatics Geo Employment Section to help provide you with all the other places on the web that you can find geospatial jobs in Canada (including our competition).

Professional Geomatics Associations & Groups in Canada

Professional Geomatics Associations & Groups in Canada After a much debated and detailed discussion on LinkedIn it was determined that many people are not aware of all the professional geomatics associations that are available in Canada nor witch ones they should become part of (especially since some cost money and most can not afford to join them all). Therefore I started this new section on the web site to cover some of the organizations that I am either a member of or know information about. The plan will be to cover at least one of these professional geomatics associations in more detail every month. Professional organizations are great ways to network and discuss GIS topics with others in the same industry. Here is my current list of professional geomatics related organizations in Canada with links to their web sites and then links to more in depth coverage about each one as they are added monthly to the web site. So if you see one that I have missed from the list, think your organization or user group should be added or have some information to add to one of these then feel free to let me know. All feedback is welcome.

Canadian Geospatial Directory

Canadian Geospatial Directory The Canadian Geospatial Directory contains basic information about the various Geomatics related companies found in and around Canada (with some from abroad) including many key aspects such as the companies basic info, contact info, web site info and geographic location. We started adding content to the directory using our own database of 1000+ Canadian companies and organizations from coast to coast that work in the geomatics field. However, it is time for the Canadian Geomatics community to help us further fill out the directory by contributing more information to existing listings and adding new listings for companies and services that have yet to be included. All this is free, so find out how you can help add information about your Canadian company or organization …

Guidelines for Real-Time Kinematic (RTK) Surveying

RTK Over the past decade Real Time Kinematic (RTK) surveying with Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) has become common practice in geomatics. RTK surveying can allow people to achieve relative positioning with centimetre (cm) precision, however there are several important factors that need to be considered and thus a need for a good guide of best practices (equipment calibration, errors, multipath, geometry, etc.).
