Geographic Education and Geospatial Related Careers

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.

GANS Geographic Education Poster Series

Geography Helped Me Get Where I am Now

The GANS Geographic Education Posters are created to help  young people identify some of the endless possibilities that learning geography provides, by  highlighting the various different geography related post-secondary education programs and geospatial related career opportunities available. 

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 are professionally printed and sent to the corresponding high school that the featured professional graduated from. We believe that this initiative helps promote both high school geography and our industry, ultimately resulting in more students pursuing geospatial studies and careers after they leave high school. It also provides more knowledge to the teachers, parents, and general public about what our industry does, and how we provide services and knowledge that they depend upon every day.
