Another great SKI Conference

Another year, another great conference from Spatial Knowledge and Information Canada. 16 students from the Geothink grant attended the pre-conference.

Approximately 70 people attended, among them engineers, geographers, planners, law graduate students, planners. We heard 53 presentations, from Mapping for the Czech airforce to Geosocial to geospatial data in land tenure. And a great keynote from Nigel Waters.

See below the fold from talks from Geothink and from our lab.
