Geomatics Innovation


The emergence of mass-market distribution systems, such as mobile devices, has dramatically increased the demand and profile of location-based data and technology. However, such Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and other location-enabled applications are dependent on standardized, up-to-date and accurate location-based information. This program delivers architecture, standardization and application policies and expertise in order to enable the natural resources sector to create innovative, value-added applications used for example in the management of forests, determining the slope for pipeline location and elevation modelling used in dam construction. The use of NRCan's location-based knowledge in a wide variety of value-added applications can stimulate economic growth and productivity, enabling these sectors to be more competitive.
