Where Canadians Currently Stand on the Climate Change Debate

The ongoing controversy surrounding Alberta’s recent carbon levy policy, known as Climate Leadership Plan, is my main impetus for writing this blog. The carbon levy policy is a direct result of the Alberta government’s espousal of climate change; but are the claims of climate change so readily accepted by the Canadian people?

Alberta Oil and Gas Royalty Review 2015: Understanding the Province’s Royalty System – Part 1

I have lived by one crucial principle since I was 24 years old. I don't blame or complain about things like the economy, the government, taxes, employees, gas prices, or any of the external things that I don't have control over.

The Even More Wonderful World of GIS

Few things pique my interest like a convincing, scientific argument made using a map. People enjoyed The Wonderful World of GIS so much that I thought a sequel was in order. Here are five more geographical information projects that deserve to be shared.

Christmas Time Is Here : A geoLOGIC Season of Giving

The iconic tune from A Charlie Brown Christmas speaks to the inner child in all of us and shines through the hustle and bustle of the holiday season.

The ongoing impasse on the Keystone XL Pipeline Project looks startlingly different against results from the latest polls of American public opinion.

The Wonderful World of GIS

The other day, I was working on a map. I happened to have Satellite Imagery open when a coworker remarked that my map looked “like a nuclear strike map.” While I do not actually harbor such devious plans, his comment got me thinking about the power of geography to illustrate things in new and enlightening ways.

geoLOGIC Managers Sent to the Slammer!

On January 14, geoLOGIC joined the fight against cancer and snitched on a few managers for their office conduct. Teaming up with the Canadian Cancer Society, four of our managers were arrested (very memorably) by uniformed Calgary Police officers, read their mock charges and taken off to the “slammer”.
