Recently we had some photos sent to us that were scanned from the 70-71 and 71-72 NSLSI yearbooks (yearbooks that were done entirely in house without word processor or other electronic equipment).

Photos include an oblique airphoto showing location of NSLSI in Lawerncetown, photos of the Dart Team, NSLSI First year photogrammetry 1971 class, and a photo of Linette & Captain Hogg with some geomatics technology that I am sure that most recent COGS alumni may not be familiar with.

Thanks to Pierre-Yves for sharing these with us.

COGS 2014 Grad Profiles

The 2013-2014 Graduate Profile booklet for the Centre of Geographic Sciences (COGS) was designed to help potential employers, seek out, and find suitable geomatics based candidate for positions within their company. COGS graduates come with varied backgrounds, experiences, and skill sets and are eager to help potential employers fill the needs of their organizations.

COGS students of 2014 have worked hard to meet the demands of a rigorous school schedule expanding their knowledge of Geographic Information Systems, Remote Sensing, Marine Geomatics, Geographic Information Systems for Business, Cartography, Community & Environmental Planning, Surveying, and Geomatics Engineering. So check out COGS alumni of 2014 by downloading a full copy here: http://www.cogs.ns.ca/Programs/Geomatics/COGSGradProfile2014.pdf

Where Are COGS Grads Now?

Here is a map showing spatial locations of several graduates from the NSCC Centre of Geographic Sciences (COGS) and its former names ‘College of Geographic Sciences’ and ‘Nova Scotia Land Survey Institute’.

The map was created to commemorate the 25th year of COGS event held at the Geomatics Atlantic 2012 in Halifax, grads were given an opportunity to enter their first name, last initial, program, graduation year and their current location.
