IMPORTANT NOTICE

Your health and safety, and that of our partners and employees, are of the utmost importance to us. At Esri Canada, we have been monitoring the news about the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and have made the difficult decision to cancel all in-person User Conferences and seminars scheduled up to June 30, 2020. Anyone who has already registered for one of these events will receive a full refund. Further updates will be posted to this web page and sent to customers via email.


Join us for the Pacific Ocean Forum where a community of ocean professionals will gather to share advances in data collection and analysis to gain a better understanding of our Oceans.

We will discuss how multidimensional data and web apps can put scientific information to work in your organization. Consider the potential of sharing knowledge across these disciplines and collaborating with multiple stakeholders.  Be part of this growing community as it forges new and better concepts in ocean analytics and applications.

The component of the event I liked was meeting people. This should be broadcasted broadly to federal, provincial people so we could leverage potential collaborations and sharing data.
