Visit our booth

Come find us at Booth #1111 in Vancouver, B.C. at the annual GSA meeting. Our booth is staffed by UNAVCO staff from all groups within the organization, as well as by 2014 RESESS interns.

Join us for a TLS demo

Also at our booth, we will demo the terrestrial laser scanning (TLS) equipment used in our popular Saturday short course. Demo times are 5:00-7:00p Sunday (during the GSA opening reception), 10:00a-12:00p Monday, and 4:00-6:30p Tuesday.

Take a short course

UNAVCO teaches community short courses every year at GSA. This year we're at our most diverse, teaching technical, communications, and education short courses. Space still available for some short courses; inquire by calling GSA.

Come to an event

UNAVCO is a proud supporter of the GSA Educators' Reception on Sunday evening (October 19) from 7-9pm at the Hyatt Regency Vancouver.
