GIS Conferences and Events in Canada

[page last updated March 2016]

Attending professional GIS conferences or  geomatics related events is always a great way to stay current with what is happening in the geomatics industry and provides amble opportunity to enjoy a good time while networking and mingling with others in the geomatics sector. GIS conferences or geomatics related events - 2005 CIG Conference in Ottawa

Many professional organizations across Canada offer great geomatics related conferences and events every year, so we created the Canadian GIS Conference and Events section on CanadianGIS.com as a way to provide the geospatial community with free information about the various related conferences, events, workshops, training seminars and webinars that are being offered.

Our events section includes a variety events related to GIS, remote sensing, surveying, cartography, geography and all other geomatics disciplines (and from British Columbia to Newfoundland).

We are fortunate enough to be able to attend several GIS conference and events every year all across Canada so we also post summaries of past events (when we can) with photos for those that were not fortunate enough to attend but wanted to know how the conference or event turned out.

Listed below are some of the upcoming GIS conferences, events and webinars.  If you know of one that is not listed in our events section or are planning a geomatics related conference or event and would like to have it listed for free  and promoted out through the Canadian GIS & Geomatics networks then let us know.

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.”
