Geography Helped Me Get Where I am Now

GANS Geographic Education Posters were created to help people identify some of the endless possibilities that learning geography provides, by highlighting the various different geography related post-secondary education programs and geospatial related career opportunities available

All the geomatics related professionals featured in the GANS Poster series are graduates from various Nova Scotia high schools and have followed a variety of post-secondary paths, including both colleges and universities, to get where they are today. – Geography Matters!

The custom designed posters were professionally printed and sent to the corresponding high school that the featured professional graduated from.

Clicking one the images below will open up a dedicated page for each individual with a larger digital PDF version of the poster (that you can print and hang up in your classroom) and a summary of that person’s post-secondary path, and his/her present job.

We will continue to add more images and narratives about other Nova Scotian geospatial careers here in the future, so please check back, or contact us if you want to get involved in the GANS Geographic Education Poster Series.

And in the end, it’s about using all that knowledge to help bridge divides and bring people together. ” – Barack Obama
