The Association of Petroleum Surveying & Geomatics Canada Chapter is pleased to announce a Call for Papers for our Spring Meeting on April 3, 2014.
This is a Call for Papers to present during the meeting, which is open until March 14, 2014. We are currently planning for a Full Day event. There will be two themes at this event this year.
Due to the success of the presentations about Oil & Gas Web Map Development at our last meeting, we are asking for more companies to demonstrate their applications to the membership. Please submit a note to Dean Mikkelsen (email@example.com) if you are interested in making a presentation.
In the afternoon, we are looking at discussing an issue of importance to our members here in Calgary: NAD27/NAD83 Conversions and how we handle them from a software perspective, mapping, geology and geophysics, acquisition, pipelines, and what various organizations are doing to accommodate either datum or both datums. We would like to hear from Operators, Pipeline, Service and Government and Regulatory agencies about NAD27/NAD83 and to share your learning and experiences. Again, please submit a note to Dean Mikkelsen (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested in making a presentation about this topic.
As with all events we will also be looking for sponsors for the Lunch and Social afterwards. If you are interested please contact Dean Mikkelsen (email@example.com).
If there are more members interested in joining the leadership committee and helping to build the APSG here in Calgary, please feel free to contact Dean Mikkelsen (firstname.lastname@example.org). We would like to become active in presenting the APSG and sharing and educating other professional organizations here in Calgary about the importance of geodesy, mapping, and how the importance of knowing your location can help the corporate bottom line.
