Upcoming Geomatics Related Events

Below is the GANS geomatics related events calendar. In addition to posting the numerous events that GANS hosts every month, we have also included other geomatics related events in Atlantic Canada that we think may be of possible interest to the geospatial community. 

If you know of any events that we have not included below, then feel free to share that info with us and we will include it in the GANS geomatics related events calendar.

You can also switch the calendar view below into a list of events, if you prefer to view them that way (using links below).

    The construction industry is poised for disruption; digital technologies and processes are transforming the traditional planning, design, construction and operation of the built environment. Digital transformation will result in time savings, increased quality, improved safety, greater sustainability and waste reduction. New processes like offsite construction (pre-fabrication & modularization), digital workflows and the adoption of new automation technology are propelling the industry into a more productive and efficient future.

    This session will host senior management executives, technology leaders and prominent researchers who will demonstrate how the design, construction and facility management industry are embracing digital transformation and benefiting from adopting new technologies and processes. Join us in Fredericton at the University of New Brunswick, home to Canada’s first engineering program and the newly established Off-site Construction Research Centre (OCRC) – a collaborative research hub connecting industry and academia in partnership with OSCO Construction Group.

    • 9:30 AM - 4:00 PM

    ***The speaker schedule has been released!***

    GANS is hosting an all-day professional development seminar titled, Smart Cities & Communities: A Spatial Approach to Efficiency! Attend this event to learn more about your community's smart resources and to network with other professionals or prospects in geospatial fields.

    WHEN: Tuesday, November 26, 2019 from 9:30am to 4:00pm

    WHERE: Halifax Central Library, Spring Garden Road, Halifax (Room 301)



    The seminar will inform attendees on how cities and communities in the Maritimes are currently adopting and planning to adopt smart technologies via the Internet of Things (IoT) and spatial systems such as GPS receivers and GIS networks. Professionals that have contributed to such developments will share their experiences with solving work dilemmas through a spatial approach. We are hoping to explore and stimulate discussions on how organizations in different areas, private or public, for-profit or non-profit, are using smart technologies to improve efficiency from a geospatial perspective. You will leave at the end of the day knowing more about the impact that spatial systems have on the efficiency of your community. 

    Please note that in an attempt to keep the registration fee as low as possible, lunch will not be provided (though there are many terrific pubs and eateries within easy walking distance of the library!). Act fast - space is limited!

    For more information, feel free to contact us by email at [email protected].



    Interested in speaking? Do you have experience with interconnected smart sensors and / or applying a spatial approach to solve dilemmas in your work? We may also still be in need of presenters and invite you to contact us for more information by emailing [email protected]
