About Us

Eastcan Geomatics is a multi-disciplined geomatics company based in Halifax, Nova Scotia. We partner with Thompson Conn Ltd., one of Atlantic Canada’s largest land surveying companies, to supply our clients with a full range of airborne and land based surveying. Together we represent more than 25 skilled professionals, working from offices in Halifax & Sydney, NS, and Manchester, England.

Eastcan started operation in 1959, providing photogrammetric and cartographic services, using analogue stereoplotters and pen & paper. We now work with the latest softcopy workstations supported by CAD & GIS software and have incorporated GIS development and field data collection into our list of primary services.

We use Cardinal Systems’ & DVP’s softcopy software for data compilation and Cardinal Systems & Inpho Systems software for image rectification and mosaicing. Our CAD & GIS projects are conducted on dual screen workstations operating ESRI, Autodesk and Microstation software. Our field crews use the Leica suite of products to collect field data for various GIS projects. Together, with our partners, we provide our clients with air photo and LiDAR data collections for a full array of aerial survey services.

We’re pleased to work with a wide range of public and private entities located in Atlantic Canada as well as across North America and into the Caribbean. Our clients include municipal, provincial and federal governments, various corporate groups and private individuals.
