I have been fortunate enough over the past 20 years to work in most of the disciplines in geomatics, that included a unique opportunity for several years to travel all across North and Central America. This combination of traveling to new places and working with geographic information has allowed me to better appreciate the vast geography of Canada.

Gordon Lake is one of the lakes that they use to create the famous winter Ice Road that allows goods and equipment to be shipped up north to the diamond mines for a few months every year.
