Géologie Québec will be at the Geomatics 2011 conference in Montréal

Once every two years, the Montréal section of the Canadian Institute of Geomatics (CIG) organizes and presents a symposium entitled “Geomatics”.

The 2011 edition of Geomatics is intended not only for public and private sector managers, but also for geomatics professionals and people unfamiliar with the subject. Participants will have an opportunity to hear experienced speakers who will talk about their recent achievements, new products and services, or their vision for the future. As in previous years, the symposium will include a commercial exhibition with 50 exhibitors. However, the event becomes more elaborate each time it is presented, and this year there will also be an innovation showcase, two lunchtime conferences with prestigious speakers, as well as demonstrations of commercial products and services. Most of the major stakeholders from Québec’s geomatics and information technology field will be attending.

The Ministère des Ressources naturelles et de la Faune (MRNF) is a leading stakeholder in the field of geomatics, as both a user and a developer. It will be very active and highly visible at the symposium, among other things with a booth covering roughly 1,000 square feet. Most of the MRNF’s sectors and some of its ministerial partners will also be represented.

Géologie Québec will be part of the ministerial team. It will present the latest version of SIGEOM, and will be sharing its geomatics knowledge with other participants. The symposium will also allow it to compare its own achievements with those of other stakeholders, and to continue its technology watch activities in the field of geomatics.

The 2011 symposium will take place on October 12 and 13, 2011, at the Montréal Bonaventure Hilton Hotel.
