GeoIgnite 2022: March 1 – March 3, Canada’s National Geospatial Conference

Winter Geo – March 1st – 3rd 2022 with a workshop week running from March 4th – 10th, 2022.

GeoIgnite is a free virtual event that invites the community to come together online for updates on services, investment, and technology from geospatial leaders from Canada’s public and private sector. The themes of the conference relate to climate change, and as this is a free event for the Canadian community it is the perfect opportunity to see what the sector is doing to monitor and combat climate change.

During this year’s GeoIgnite, we promise that our workshop week will be just as diverse and engaging as last year. Once again, GeoIgnite will be virtual in 2022, allowing the audience to expand exponentially. Please visit
