Government of Saskatchewan Wins Esri Award for GIS Excellence
Esri Canada has recognized the Government of Saskatchewan with an Award of Excellence for its outstanding use of geographic information system (GIS) technology. The Government leveraged GIS for the Saskatchewan Enterprise Geo Database project, a spatial data warehouse that consolidates more than 350 datasets from various government archives and makes the information widely available.Before the consolidated geodatabase came online earlier this year, all of the Government’s datasets were managed in disparate systems, which greatly inhibited the sharing of spatial data. This siloed approach led to costly data duplication, inaccuracies and productivity losses, as staff struggled to find information and verify its accuracy.

Geomatics Acronyms and Abbreviations
Using acronyms and abbreviations is commonly practiced in the Geomatics industry and most of the time people just assume that everybody else knows what every acronyms and abbreviation stands for. Well that is obviously not the case most of the time and over the years I have created myself a little digital cheat-sheet of geomatics acronyms and abbreviations that I use with my work in my writing.

Geomatics – GIS data base modeling
The design of the spatial database is the formal process of analyzing facts about the real world into a structured model. Database design is characterized by the following phases: requirement analysis, logical design and physical design. In more common terms, you basically need a plan, a design layout and then the data to complete the process.
