CV

James Bornemann, B.Sc. (Eng), M.Sc.

  • Educational background in Geomatics (B.Sc.) and Environmental Science (M.Sc.)
  • I currently work in land planning and apply geomatics solutions to day-to-day operations and collaborate on several projects related to: coastal and in-land climate change adaptation to flooding, planning considering natural assets, asset management and recreation planning
  • I work with multiple large data sets (LiDAR, property, zoning, building permits, multi-spectral imagery and various other raster and vector layers) and analyze the spatial relationships for zoning, reports and maps (both web and print)
