Geomatics incorporates a wide range of spatially related disciplines including cartography , geodesy, remote sensing, surveying, photogrammetry, satellite positioning and geographic information systems (GIS) , all of which can be brought together to help provide a thorough understandable depiction of the human and physical world. To have a successful career in geomatics one must build upon a solid foundation starting with geographic education.
The Geomatics Association of Nova Scotia recognizes the importance of geographic education and the significant role that it plays in a young geomatics professional’s career. Therefore we have created this section of the website to promote and highlight geographic education programs and geospatial related career opportunities in Nova Scotia.
Geographic Education and Geospatial Career Resources
All the geomatics related professionals featured here are graduates from various Nova Scotia high schools and have followed a variety of post-secondary paths, including both colleges and universities, to get where they are today. - Geography Matters!
The custom designed posters were professionally printed and sent to the corresponding high school that the featured professional graduated from.
Clicking one the images below will open up a dedicated page for each individual with a larger digital PDF version of the poster (that you can print and hang up in your classroom) and a summary of that person’s post-secondary path, and his/her present job.
We will continue to add more images and narratives about other Nova Scotian geospatial careers here in the future, so please check back, or contact us if you want to get involved in the GANS Geographic Education Poster Series.
