Geomatics Research Facilities
COGS has recently acquired funding from the Canadian Foundation
for Innovation (CFI) which has allowed the Campus to acquire
technology and information infrastructure to broaden the program
thrust at COGS to interface with marine spatial interests,
resulting in a centre of expertise in coastal zone geomatics.
The CFI funding supports the development of a spatial information
infrastructure, which serves the immediate needs of the
collective faculty and research students. It will enable on-line
access to essential datasets and relevant software, and provide
the image processing capability to interpret geomatics
information and reproduce it for use in mapping and modelling,
environmental impact and socio-economic analysis of coastal zones
and the immediate offshore. Industry, academic and government
collaborators are being encouraged to make extensive use of this
