Increasing cooperation and communication among geomatics practitioners. The profession has an image problem – our work is not well understood by the general public. Our top priority is to get our value proposition out to everyone.
We seem to have good presence, but communication/collaboration is still lacking. The profession needs to strengthen its linkages both internally and externally. GeoAlliance’s success with membership will also be our success.
It is suggested that a project dealing with increasing our visibility, e.g., the role of maps in improving our economy, that the general public can readily relate to. They need to “get” it.
An organization that is currently involved in the international scene, e.g., CIG. GeoAlliance Canada need to not only be the go to national leadership organization for broad geomatics sector, but also needs to position itself as a world leader. CIG’s experience with FIG would be beneficial to GeoAlliance Canada.
