One of the challenges many Municipalities and Utilities face is identifying the location and extent of the existing easements they hold. An easement can be described as an interest in land owned by another that entitles its holder to a specific limited use. For these organizations, the easements they hold provide access to critical infrastructure for inspection, maintenance and other related activities.
Through a partnership with the Regional Municipality of Peel, Teranet is undertaking a project to identify and map the location of easements held by, or in favour of the Regional Municipality. During this presentation you will learn:
Teranet, is a world leader in mapping and information systems, and is responsible for the on-going maintenance and management of POLARIS, the Province of Ontario Land Registration Information System. POLARIS is a comprehensive database containing all electronic land registration data relating to property interests in Ontario.
Richard Norris, Account Manager for the Government and Utility sectors at Teranet Inc., will lead a presentation on identifying registered easements and mapping their extents.
With the latest releases, online data availability and pre-built templates, many organizations are interested in managing their own tracking applications. This presentation will focus on a winter operation example using Esri’s Tracking Server. Based on recent RFP requirements, ESRI Canada has developed an easy to use application that leverages existing Esri technology to give the customer more control over their data.

Not a golfer? Not a problem! The format for playing is a scramble format. 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.
