On October 2014, 28th and 30th, Intelli3 presented webinars to introduce Big Data to the geomatics community. In these 90 minutes webinars, organized in English and French by GeoConnections (Natural Resources Canada), we make an overview of the Big Data main concepts and technological ecosystem. We provide examples, describe how Big Data influences our field and how Geomatics influences Big Data. We also summarize the main challenges and opportunities for Big Data. Then, we highlight the importance of geospatial data for Big Data, we differentiate Spatially-aware Big Data from Big Earth Data, and we introduce our challenges and opportunities to fully harness the power of geospatial data in the Big Data arena. The choice of Intelli3 by the Canadian Government and by Hickling Arthurs Low Corporation is a good indication of our expertise in strategic studies and our capacity to make complex technological issues more comprehensible for everyone.
