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).

Canadian GIS Data Sources [FREE]

Canadian Open Data Map

Almost any geomatics professional would agree that a major part of any GIS are the data sets involved. Often the data component can be very costly or labor intensive, but it doesn’t always have to be that way, as there are plenty of great resources available that offer free open Canadian data to generate geospatial products with.

Over the past few years CanadianGIS.com has been highlighting and promoting various cities and provinces in Canada that have done a great job providing data and applications to the public.

I created this page a few years ago to collaborate links of all the open geospatial data info (sites that offer data downloads at no cost and without restrictions), fee based geospatial data, online web mapping applications and other great sources of geospatial information (including National, Provincial and Regional levels). I am sure that this comprehensive list of open geospatial data, fee based geospatial data, web mapping applications and cartographic products will be valuable to many of us (as I get hundreds of emails and requests regarding “Where can I find data for …?”) so I continue to update it when I learn of new information and sources of Canadian data sets.

Giant Canadian Floor Map Series

Giant Floor Map of Canada

Canadian Geographic is providing Canadian educators (K to 12) with a new innovative hands-on creative way to teach Canada’s rich geographic history to younger generations. Their “Giant Floor Map Program” is a free resource that teachers can borrow to help enhance students’ geography experiences through a hands-on, fun creative way to learn.

It is really hard to appreciate the true size, resolution and quality of these maps through photos on the web, however one of the maps were displayed at the June CGCRT national workshop that I attended and I must say, these giant floor maps are just as impressive as they sound and certainly will provide many young people with a new perspective for mapping and the spatial extent of Canada.

The Giant Floor maps are available on loan for 3-week periods …
