Geomatics NOW – From Field Collection to Online and Real-Time Dissemination
January 24th & 25th, 2022
The Geomatics Association of Nova Scotia (GANS) is excited to host our every-3-years Geomatics Atlantic Conference in Halifax November 8th – 9th, 2021, online.
The theme is Geomatics NOW – From Field Collection to Online and Real-Time Dissemination and we will be exploring innovation, cutting edge R&D, and the future of geomatics as it relates to the increasing desire to have our questions answered quickly and in a way that is easy to understand and integrate into our own workflows.
We will be hosting presentations on current spatial data field collection techniques and software, how teams transmit or store data in the field, and how the field data can be easily shared with others – particularly in near real time. There will be a focus on online/web-based data collection apps, as well as near real-time processing and dissemination methods to clients and other field personnel.
We are reaching out to researchers, organizations and companies actively involved in collecting spatial data using online applications (ie. Esri, Avenza, open-source) who in turn make the data available to clients or other field personnel using similar means. We hope to have a cross-sectoral conference that includes: asset management, environmental assessment and remediation, crop monitoring, environment & habitat characterization, emergency management, and many others – all connected through geomatics.
