Created in 2007, GEOMA was derived from the Gaelic word Teoma meaning “expert.” GEOMA was developed to better represent and market the GIS division of Geraldton Community Forest.
The GCF/GEOMA head office is located in Northwestern Ontario within the Municipality of Greenstone. In 1994, a GIS was implemented at GCF that focused on the forest industry. Work included forest management plans, forest resource inventories and annual work schedules. In 2004, GCF’s GIS department expanded to include projects such as forest fire mapping and GPS contracts with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR). Now a division of GCF, GEOMA is involved with Municipal GIS, forest fire mapping, map product creation, online, interactive mapping applications and many other GIS projects throughout Ontario.
GEOMA’s newest product is a comprehensive online map of Northern Ontario, called Nomap. Nomap is filled with spectacular details that anyone traveling in Northern Ontario can use and appreciate from locations of accommodations, attractions, services and shopping to finding what fish species are in a lake, where to go hiking, canoeing, or skidooing, Nomap.ca has it all!
Always with the same great attention to detail, GEOMA is rapidly becoming Northern Ontario’s leading source of map products with it’s popular Northern Adventure Map Series and Fish Finder Series. Check out our website today to find a retailer near you!
