British Columbia’s economy is largely resource based, and is also the endpoint of Canadian transcontinental highways and railways to the Pacific, making international trade a key factor. GIS has always played a key role in helping the British Columbia economy flourish. There are many GIS related Companies in British Columbia that we have listed in the the Canadian Geospatial Directory and here you will find hundreds of GIS jobs related to Geomatics in British Columbia.

ISPRS Workshop – Laser Scanning 2011
Details: The Laser Scanning 2011 event will be the seventh of a series of ISPRS workshops about laser scanning that began back in 1999. It is aimed to bring together scientists, system developers and practitioners from different disciplines who are focused on the modelling and application of point cloud data acquired from laser scanners and other active imaging systems such as range cameras.
“The applications of point cloud data captured from laser scanning instruments are increasing in number and diversity every year. Airborne laser scanning is an important technology for the production of digital elevation models and 3D city models and in forestry and hydrology. Static terrestrial laser scanning has been adopted for many engineering purposes such as as-built documentation deformation monitoring, the recording of cultural heritage sites and the measurement of the human body. In addition, the past few years have seen a considerable increase in the number of vehicle-borne mobile laser scanning systems available on the market in response to the ready uptake of this technology for rapid corridor mapping.”
