Hi everyone.

Stumbled across this site yesterday and really wish I had found it sooner. Everything looks fantastic.

I'm currently studying at a college here in Lindsay in a GIS Carographic Specialist program with about 5 months left to go.

Looking real forward to finishing.

Cheers.

-Derek

Hi Derek I attended COGS a few years ago & as we used to say about the maps produced by your school, boy is that scale even right? :lol:

"There is much beauty that we fail to see through our own eyes teeming with life forms that give us that perception of our reality.  Leaves on the trees blowing gently in the wind, or scarily, the waves pounding through high surf, or lightly on a warm summer’s day; that opportunity to sit or swim in the water on a white beach.   That comfort to shout, “The universal conscious do you hear me?  I am alive, guide me dear logos towards the path of rightnesses.”  Earned what has been kept, no longer to be absorbed into a life filled with cold damn winds and  that stubborn fog clouding  my vision with nothing but darkness."

Watch it, I'm a SSFC grad ... and my scales were always right! :D

Derek, welcome to the forum. I'm sure you'll find this site a useful resource while you're at SSFC. I wish it was up when I was there (in 2003-2004).

Good luck with the program.... and stay warm. ;)

Watch it, I'm a SSFC grad

As am I ('97). I wonder how many SSFC grads are lurking about the forum.

Hi Derek,

Welcome to the forum.

Speaking of SSFC grads, I graduated SSFC GIS Applications Specialist in 06.
