Geomatics is a geospatial term that originated in Canada due to the similarity in origin with both official languages, English and French. It encompasses various tools and techniques from a multitude of geographic disciplines (geographic information systems (GIS), remote sensing, cartography, global navigation satellite systems (GNSS), photogrammetry, geography, surveying, and other related forms of spatial mapping).
I am a certified Geomatics Specialist with 15+ years experience in geographic sciences and during that time have been fortunate enough to work in almost all aspects of Geomatics (and in every province of Canada).
Originally, I created tmackinnon.com to be my online career portfolio while studying Applied Geomatics Research at COGS but since then have been using it as an online place to share information with others about geospatial resources using samples, photos and other interesting information that I have learned from work experiences or during my travels.
Below are a few short descriptions with links to the sites main categories (also included in the nav-bar above), the left hand column contains a drop down of all categories, links to latest additions to the site, a search tool and other related information. I am active in most geomatics related networks and professional organizations (GANS, CIG, CCA, CRSS etc.) as well as social media so feel free to connect with me through any of them and in the mean time, thanks for visiting my site.
