My name is Ted MacKinnon, a geomatics specialist with over 20 years experience. I originally created this site to be my geomatics portfolio and as a way to have my resume visible online 24-7, but over time it has morphed into an online geospatial web resource where I share knowledge about geographic information and geospatial resources gained through experience that I have obtained over the years.
During my career I have been fortunate enough to work in many geomatics related disciplines, which has provided me with a wide range of experiences and knowledge of the Canadian Geomatics Sector. Everything fro basic cartographic map design to processing LiDAR and aerial photography data.
Living in a rural Canadian environment, although great for enjoying an easy going laid back lifestyle, can sometimes have its drawbacks, such as staying informed on what is currently happening in Canadian Geomatics. However thanks to the evolution of technology, the internet, social media and extensive networking through professional associations, I have not only been able to stay current with geomatics information, but also become known as an influencer in the Canadian geospatial community.
This site is intended to allows others to learn a little more about myself, my work and my passion for geomatics. Therefore I encourage people to browse the various geospatial related content on my site and connect with me on the social media. Together we make the geospatial community stronger.
