To help advance the GIS industry, we initiate partnerships and programs that promote collaborative innovation.
Esri Canada company is a founding member of GeoAlliance Canada, which will lead and unify the activities and resources of various geospatial organizations in the country and promote the value of the geospatial community.
Community Maps Program
The Community Maps Program we launched in 2010 is succeeding in creating the Community Map of Canada, a comprehensive national web basemap built from contributions from authoritative sources. It fosters innovation by providing the public with free access to accurate, up-to-date maps and data for a wide variety of applications.
Esri Canada is leading the development of the GeoFoundation Exchange (GFX), a national, collaborative, open data exchange for accurate and authoritative geographic base mapping data. Authoritative base mapping producers at all levels of government can efficiently leverage this common exchange to reduce their base mapping costs and improve the products and services they offer to their end users.
