There are many great reasons why people Twitter use, like sending out news briefs, advertising job postings, sharing information and much more. We have been using Twitter since 2010 and actively post and share GIS and geomatics related content. We post geomatics related jobs, information about opendata, vintage maps and many more geospatial related topics. If you are using Twitter then we encourage you to follow us.

Unlike the traditional GIS day that takes place every year, during Geography Week and used to help promote GIS and geographic education, GIS Appreciation Day would be celebrated more via social media as a fun way to promote GIS, cartography and maps. We are very active on social media and plan to participate, and hope that you will join us on March 2nd by using the hashtag #GISAppreciationDay with all your social media postings on Twitter, FaceBook, Instagram and Google+. Also do not forget to include lots of great maps, geospatial info, funny GIS memes, videos and various GIS related images

Recently our Geomatics LinkedIn group was selected as the top Canadian Geomatics LinkedIn Group. Rankings were based on the size of the group (the number of members), the spatial coverage of the group, the groups content and the group’s activity. If you are not already a member of the Canadian GIS LinkedIn Group, then I invite you to join the Canadian GIS LinkedIn Grou UPDATE: - Two year's later and our group is still growing strong now with over 4.500 members ...

Social media is a method for online networking interaction, using highly accessible and scalable publishing and marketing techniques. Traditionally people have always gained information, education and news through electronic and print media. Web based social services make it possible to connect people that share common interests and activities across political, economic, and geographic borders. CanadianGIS.com has been active with several social media web-based technologies for marketing, interactive communication and networking opportunities with others in the geomatics industry.I have provided some basic information below on ways that I have been social networking with other GIS professionals and encourage you to try some of these as well.

The City of Toronto has recently celebrated two years of online Open Data service and they have full intention on continuing to build on that success, by stating that they intend to add more data layers and will further develop their site. Data sets are provided in various standard downloadable file formats such as XLS, CSV, DGN & SHP. All data set contains basic meta info associated with them such as who created the data, date, format, projection, attributes, contact info etc. The bottom line here is the City of Toronto has granted the GIS community a royalty free, non exclusive licence to use, modify, and distribute any of their data sets that they continue to make available via their data catalogue.

The CanadianGIS.com website is a free online Canadian Geospatial resource website that I started in 2005 after discovering that there was a lack of good online places to find Canadian GIS & Geomatics resources for the projects that I was involved with. Over time it evolved from a small html based site created mainly for my own use to an interactive one where thousands of people now visit every week. More functionality has been added such as social media, geomatics events calendar, blog and the Canadian Geospatial directory but the focus has remained the same and thanks to a dedicated following the site remains to be one of the best places to help people find online Canadian Geospatial resources.
