Dr. Roger Tomlinson of Tomlinson Associates Ltd. was presented with an Award of Excellence at ESRI Canada’s Regional User Conference in Ottawa. Alex Miller, President of ESRI Canada, presented the Award in recognition of Dr. Tomlinson’s contribution to advancing the science of geography and to creating the technology that forms the foundation of the GIS industry. More than 200 GIS professionals were on hand for the presentation, which was one of the highlights of the conference.
Dr. Tomlinson has developed a methodology for teaching and planning a GIS. He delivers this vision to managers and executives through workshops and his ‘Planning and Managing a GIS’ course on ESRI’s Virtual Campus. He is in the process of writing a new book that will provide senior executives and GIS managers with the necessary tools to put a successful GIS in place.
