Impacts of melting sea ice


The CanICE project aims to make data on sea ice, collected by the Canadian Ice Service, available online for organizations and northern residents, industries, researchers and the public. One of the project objectives is to allow for the analysis of changes in ice coverage over time, differences between territories and the impacts on the climate. In collaboration with the Canadian Ice Service, Waterloo University, Université Laval and Ryerson University.

GeoContact – Business geospatial directory of the geomatics sector


Development of a business web directory offering advanced features for sector and market analysis. This electronic directory, a geodecisional application, allows for ad hoc targeted analysis, easy identification of potential partners, strategic positioning and promotion of businesses’ products and services.

Web portal for the visualization of mobile surveys

mobile survey

Development of a web portal for the query, visualization and measurement of feature positions on mobile survey images. The application is supported by a spatial, temporal, and descriptive metadata base. The underlying issue was that no uniform method existed to document the survey projects’ metadata and the mobile survey images were usable only in a desktop environment. This portal is developed using open source technologies.

Application for the analysis of natural risks

Coastal erosion near road infrastructures

coastal erosion

The application supports the analysis and monitoring of erosion processes of coastal areas in Gaspésie, Quebec. Various types of datasets (ecologic, economic, technique, social and human) collected in various forms (environmental impact studies, technical reports, research projects, survey records, hydraulic studies, etc.) have been integrated in the system. The developped application allows for highlighting potentially dangerous areas according to numerous criteria for erosion risk assessment, while allowing for the visualization of various multimedia documents (bank profiles, photographs, plans, etc.).

  • See the book chapter published in Geographic Hypermedia: Concepts and Systems.
  • See the conference, presented at the Geomatics 2006 Symposium, Montreal, Canada.

Analysis of pesticide spreading


This application allows for the analysis of the impacts of pesticide, fungicide, and herbicide spreading in an agri-environmental context.

Evaluation of funding programs

Development of a geodecisional application for the evaluation of funding programs. The project included the definition of a set of relevant indicators related to drinking water quality, wastewater, socioeconomic context, sustainable development, etc. to assess investment benefits.
