Autodesk - 3D Digital Cities:
The Convergence of CAD, GIS and BIM With urban populations expected to double by 2050, an increasingly urgent need exists for implementing sustainable urban design and infrastructure rehabilitation initiatives. Digital 3D models of our urban infrastructure form part of the solution as engineers, architects and geospatial professionals collaborate and share information across the infrastructure lifecycle. This presentation explores the reasons behind developing such a model and examines the convergence of the information and technology needed to make it real such as Smart Infrastructure Modeling (SIM), CAD, GIS and BIM.
ESRI Canada - A look into ArcGIS 10 and beyond:
ESRI Canada will deliver a presentation on some of the exciting changes to ArcGIS 10, due for release in the coming months. Highlights include advanced spatial analysis, improved data editing, powerful search capabilities and looking to the future with GIS in the Cloud.
Google - "What is Google Earth Enterprise?" and "How can it help make my organization more efficient?"
Google Earth Engineer Sean Maday will discuss how Google Earth Enterprise allows you to create 2D browser based maps similar to Google Maps in addition to custom globes similar to Google Earth. Mashup terabytes of imagery and terrain data with to your point of interest, road data and live data streams. Let non-technical employees make informed geographic decisions with easy to use Google Earth or Google Maps, without additional GIS training.

Not a golfer? Not a problem!
The format for playing is a scramble format, otherwise known as 'best ball'. The best shot for each foursome will be used, and everyone moves their ball to the 'best spot' for the next shot. This is continued throughout the play. Note: Each team must use a minimum of 3 tee shots from each team member.
The event is a great way to network and have lots of fun.
Due to the limited spots available for this day, it is recommended to register early.
URISA and GITA hosted a successful summer event on July 7, 2009. Over 60 participants enjoyed presentations followed by a round of golf at Hornby Glen Golf Course.
