Professional Geomatics Associations and Groups in Canada
Professional Geomatics Associations typically help further a particular profession, the interests of individuals engaged in that profession and help bridge public interest. They are great ways for professionals to network and discuss GIS topics with others in the same industry.
For several years we had a long list of Professional Geomatics Associations in Canada published on this page to help people learn more about the various groups and organizations that are available to the geospatial community, which ones they should become part of (especially since some cost money and most can not afford to join them all).
Then over time, this new section of the web site grew to cover in detail some of the organizations that we either are member of, or know a little about, as well as details shared by our readers.
Recently, we added all this information to the Canadian Geospatial Directory to help make the information easier to manage and update. The content on this page is now loaded randomly through a script and displayed below.
The lists includes random listings from the Canadian Geospatial Directory, for more details on a particular organization, click the view button. You can also sort the listings by City, Province, Postal Code using the quick select sorting links.
If you see any that we have missed or then please let us know.
