A bit about Geospatial Niagara and this project:

Geospatial Niagara is a non-profit organization with a vision of promoting geo-literacy and community participation through geography. We seek to accomplish this by serving as a conduit for engagement to students, citizens and organizations in order to educate and facilitate geospatial projects and outreach. If you wish, please visit our website
Non-profit organization #1913195. 
 
The survey you are participating in will be aiding in the establishment of an inventory of businesses within the Niagara Region that utilize geospatial professionals as part of their organizations day to day operations.
With this information, Geospatial Niagara hopes to be able to provide Brock University and Niagara College graduates with potential, future employers in the Niagara Region in the field of geographic information systems (GIS), geospatial technologies and geospatial information . We also hope to continue this study to further investigate the proportion of economic value which geospatial technology and information contributes to your organization and the Niagara Region as a whole.
 
The information provided will remain secure within Geospatial Niagara and will not be shared without prior consent.
