This data is contributing to revolutions in air navigation, archaeology, disaster relief, land management, natural resources, oceanography, urban planning and even retail sales since all are increasingly critical for commercial, governmental and consumer purposes.

Keep ahead of these revolutionary changes, and position your organization to effectively take advantage of them, by attending the 2015 Commercial Space Caucus on Geomatics and Remote Sensing:
Learn "Why Where Matters!" and gain an understanding of Canadian GIS capabilities, geospatial initiatives and cutting edge technologies available now.
Obtain practical advice on the tools and techniques used in land surveying, remote sensing, cartography, global-navigation satellite systems (GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, Compass), photogrammetry, geophysics, geography, and related forms of earth mapping.
Gain an understanding of the Canadian and international markets for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), satellite imaging and other geomatics technologies and explore these potential new markets.
Assess the legal and ethical issues surrounding this area.
Meet potential clients and partners in the agriculture, mining, manufacturing, city planning and other industries.
