Marine and Inland Waters Forum

There are a multitude of activities happening across the Canadian Blue Economy addressing important economic, environmental, or cultural concerns. Unfortunately, many of these activities occur in isolation, robbing us of the ability to address issues at a more holistic level. There is one thing that can be used to connect them all and reveal the big picture. That thing is location.
During this event, you will see how leaders in the Blue Economy are using location information as a connector to drive important initiatives, understand complex information, and enable better stewardship of our oceans and inland waters.
- Hear from subject matter experts discuss how they use Geographic Information Systems to preserve the oceans’ resources to ensure they are around for a long time to come

The intended audience for this forum is professionals in ocean engineering, biology, research, marine environment educators and oceanography and marine scientists.
