YVR and the Indoor Mapping Experience - FME UC 2017

One of my 2017 professional goals was to get out there and do some presentations. It's easy to do when you love talking about a project you've been working on for the past 3 years.

This one of two presentations at Safe Software's FME International Users Conference. Heard once about every 3 years, it's a GREAT conference, one of the best I've gone to. If you get a chance, go.

Ping me via Twitter or LinkedIn if you are interested in learning more about Indoor Mapping and GIS.

Oh hi there!

Man, it's been awhile.

So... yeah... about blogging. Pretty much dead here. Between the great job I have at the Airport, and the better little family I have at home, this little activity has fallen off the rails.

But if you are reading this, thank you. I've never been a good writer, more of a reader. I think I was hoping I'd used this to mull over my geo-related thoughts, but finding the time, if it ever was a priority, hasn't really happened.

What I have found that The Spatial Community on Slack is a fantastic resource, filled with really good people from all sorts of geo companies, groups, positions. As someone juggling an enterprise GIS system, it's a fantastic resource. Maybe better than Twitter now - especially now that the Orange Douchebag has become President and my Twitter stream is filled with rage & despair on the state of affairs south of the border.

Anywhoooo, if you are into anything GIS and geo-related, as a professional, go join the Slack group. You won't regret it.

That and reading up on the latest GeoHipster interviews.
