Hard to believe that it has been nine years since I started creating this site as a way to have a central “Go-To” place to help find Canadian Geospatial Resources. I like to think that the success of the site is partly related to it being run by a highly networked geomatics specialist who has knowledge of Canadian Geospatial Information, combined with the great support for the site that people provide from coast to coast (and maybe because it has always been free).
Some things have changed a little over that time (like the layout and coding) but the Main Goal remains the same; use CanadianGIS.com to provide relevant geospatial information that people can use from anywhere in Canada.
I have recently done a major overhaul of the site, cleared out many older irrelevant topics, upgraded the geomatics events calendar and created a new free Canadian Geospatial Directory that contains over a thousand listings of geo maticsrelated businesses and organizations. New search functionality was added to allow searching of events and the directory and a seperate search box for the rest of the site. Some of the existing content may have been moved around in the process so just near with me if you can not seem find what your looking for, just simply let me know and I will do what I can to help you out.
So I hope people will find the new additional information helpful, encourage people to connect with us on Twitter, LinkedIn & FaceBook and lastly, wanted to Thank everyone for Supporting us and helping the site become so successful.

Geomatics is a professional discipline that uses a systematic approach to simplify everyday problems by integrating various means to incorporate and manage data with spatial information. Geographic Information Systems (more commonly referred to as GIS) is an integral component of Geomatics that has been highly active in Canada over the past few decades and continues to flourish as the technology further develops and becomes more affordable. CanadianGIS.com was designed by a a certified Geomatics Specialist to provide an online GIS resource to help promote Canadian Geomatics and to share the knowledge of this great industry with others. So check out the wealth of GIS information that CanadianGIS.com has to offer and be sure to join our networks.
