University of British Columbia - Department of Geography

Given the diverse nature of geography, our teaching and research are inherently interdisciplinary and we seek to integrate the natural sciences, the humanities, and the social sciences.

Geomatics Resource Database

The Association of Canadian Community Colleges hosts the Geomatics Resource Database. Its purpose is to support the competitiveness of Canada’s growing geomatics sector. The aim of this database is to list all educational opportunities available to prospective students and professionals in the field of geomatics. This database is made possible in partnership with the GeoConnections initiative of Natural Resources Canada, through its GeoSkills program.
