New technologies from areas such as geomatics, remote sensing and photonics offer opportunities for improving oil and gas operations, as well as environmental monitoring.

Through the Geomatics Workplan, PTAC facilitated an event with the Canadian Space Agency, as well as a number of workshops with partners TECTERRA, LOOKNorth and INO. These activities focused on understanding challenges and opportunities resulted in the launch at the end of the year for the Airborne Microseep Mapping project.
