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.

    The Sustainable Oceans Conference is an annual student-run conference led by the Master of Marine Management students of the Marine Affairs Program (MAP) at Dalhousie University. 

    It is the only student-led conference of its kind in Atlantic Canada, and is being held for the 7th consecutive year.

    The conference aims to explore multi-disciplinary approaches for creating healthy oceans and a sustainable future.  While the overarching message remains the same, each incoming class introduces new perspectives, themes, keynote speakers, and academic presentations that make each conference unique.  The conference is a free and public event that brings together an audience of students, faculty, members of the marine community, and the general public.

    The theme of the 2018 Sustainable Oceans conference is H2O: Inspiring Happy & Healthy Oceans

This year we aim to promote behavioural change and improve ocean literacy to help people reconnect with the marine environment and inspire ocean positive and friendly choices in our daily lives. Ocean news often focuses on negative perspectives despite many positive stories and the progress being made in research. We therefore strive to bring optimism to the forefront. 

    This year’s conference will take place on Saturday, September 22, 2018 from 11:00am to 6:30pm with a reception to follow, and Sunday, September 23, 2018 from11:00am to 3:30pm. Registration will begin at 10:30 am on both days. The conference will be held in the McInnes room on the 2nd floor of the Dalhousie Student Union building at 6136 University Ave.

    Geomatics Atlantic


    We would like to announce that GANS will be hosting Geomatics Atlantic this year in Halifax, November 14th - 16th

    We are planning for this to be the biggest cross-sector oceans conference in Atlantic Canada, capitalizing on the current energy and investment in the ocean sector.

    Oceans, the largest ecosystem on earth are a vital lifeblood of our planet and mankind. They encompass nearly three quarter of the planet, supplying nearly half our oxygen and contain about 97% of our water. Everyday our oceans face major threats from climate change, pollution, habitat destruction, and a decreases in fish stocks.

    This years Geomatics Atlantic theme is Oceans of Data and will be exploring innovation, cutting edge R&D, and the future of geomatics in the marine environment. The term geomatics represents a sector and technology that uses data collected by many different groups and connects many different sectors.

    We are reaching out to all researchers, organizations and companies actively working on marine and coastal focused projects. We hope to have a cross-sectorial conference that includes: fisheries & aquaculture, energy & resources, mapping/hydrography, environment characterization, marine spatial planning, climate change, military applications, ocean technology and big data, all connected through geomatics.

    For additional Geomatics Atlantic 2018 details; including special key note speakers and conference presentations and more will be available at https://geomatics.one
