Geomatics – More than Geography

Geomatics – More than Geography

Pedro Sena represented IBW well, as he was invited to present at Ryerson University on November 26, 2018. 
The audience of Undergrads had the opportunity to hear from experts in the industry, including master students and PhD candidates.
This insightful presentation allowed the students to interact with some key experts in this field. Geomatics offers the use of some of the most advanced technology to gather, store, process and deliver geographic data.
Pedro was able to provide information regarding 3D laser scanning and how this technology can capture data and open a new world on how we can enhance this industry.

Did you know: Geomatics was coined by Michel Paradis, in a keynote paper for the Canadian Institute of Surveying in 1981.  

Take Your Student to Work Day 2018

Take Your Student to Work Day 2018

On November 14, 2018 we had the privilege to welcome seven Grade 9’s to have a taste of what goes on at IBW Surveyors. 
The students were taking part in ‘Take your Student to Work Day’ an initiative that allows them to have a first hand look at the working world.
It was a chilly day, but they braved the cold and spent the morning in the field, finding bars and assisting one of our Party Chiefs.
Upon their return and a scrumptious lunch, they were able to see first hand the technical capabilities we have at IBW.
From Scanning to GIS, and a few games in between, it was a pleasure to host a great group and IBW looks forward to this event every year.

Clarington Employer-Student Summit

IBW was asked to participate in the first Clarington Employer-Student Summit on October 3, 2018

Pedro and Brandon had a great day interacting with students from 6 of the local high schools.

IBW represented the ‘MeetBusiness’ group, which was comprised of a diversity of businesses to learn more about opportunities and skills required in the workplace.

It was a great event and it was wonderful to see so many local businesses represented, along with the diverse opportunities in Clarington.
