    Geomatics Atlantic

    We would like to announce that GANS will be hosting Geomatics Atlantic this year in Halifax, November 14th - 15th

    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

    Part of the Geomatics Atlantic Conference includes the Geomatics on the Town socials

    Geomatics on the Town

    Geomatics on the Town is a way to keep the conversations from the conference going while you enjoy great food and drink offered by establishments in Downtown Halifax. We will make the reservations and create the discussion topics.

    There will be “topic hosts” who will lead the conversations. All groups will be departing from the Lord Nelson Hotel at 6:30 PM on November 14th to walk to the restaurant as a group. 

    Space in each group is limited so please sign-up for your preferred topic online now (see list below). Sign-up sheets will also be available at the Conference registration desk.

    How it works:

    Step #1 - Pick a Group: when you arrive at he registration desk at the conference, there will be sign-up sheets with discussion topics, a restaurant, price category ($$ or $$$) and walking distance. Choose a group by the topic of interest, your cuisine and atmosphere, your budget or how far you are willing to walk. Note that each reservation will have a limited number of people so sign-up ASAP.

    Step #2 – Join your Group: at 6:30 PM on the 14th you will meet with the rest of the attendees that chose the same theme as you at designated locations in the Lord Nelson (in the Georgian Lounge and Lobby).

    Step #3 – Meet your Host(s): Your host(s) will be at the designated spot in the Lord Nelson to lead the way to the reserved restaurant and they will have questions to kick start the conversation. They will also be equipped with maps/directions if you want to find your own way (if you will be joining late you can pick-up a map/directions from the registration desk before 6 pm).

    Step #4 – Enjoy: have an informal discussion on the theme topic or take the conversation wherever it leads, make connections over similar interests and enjoy good food and drink.

    Part of the Geomatics Atlantic Conference includes a tour of the Centre for Ocean Ventures & Entrepreneurship (COVE) Facility.

    COVE is a collaborative facility for applied innovation in the ocean sector that brings together people, ideas, industry and research to help Atlantic Canada work in new ways. 

    Located in what was once the Canadian Coast Guard facility on Halifax Harbour, this hub is home to local and global ocean technology businesses, post-secondary institutions, researchers, and marine-based and service businesses that support the ocean sector. The COVE site features extensive marine facilities with two large, deep-water piers, office space, an incubator and space for shops and labs.

    The advances that are developed through COVE will have practical, commercial and revolutionary applications in ocean tech. There is a global need for ocean tech solutions. The impact of what happens at COVE has local, provincial, national and international significance.

    For more details about COVE, see www.coveocean.com

    Join us for a free tour of the COVE facility, it will start at 4:30 on November 15th at COVE but space is limited, so we ask that people register for this event. 

    Transportation to the site will not be provided however the facility is only a 1.5km walk from the Alderney Landing Ferry Terminal via the Trans Canada Trail.
