Innovative and Imaginative
Clark Geomatics Corporation (CGC) was established in 2001 as a provider of location-based services (geographic information technology type stuff) and it's been keeping us busy since day one. We've recently become much more focused on the cartographic domain and have since created and published several backcountry-themed map titles. We love maps, so creating them as a business makes a lot of sense!
Jeff Clark, lead cartographer and a principal at CGC, is the driving force behind the high-quality work produced by CGC. Our corporate background in cartography, exploration geophysics, remote sensing and geographic information technology makes us a great choice to help you meet your business needs. We're here to help.
We are always looking for ways to make our maps better because a better map means a better outdoor experience - for you. With that in mind, we are constantly researching and developing cartographic and map-making techniques to enhance our maps.
Like we've said before, our goal is to create the best backcountry / hiking maps we can, for you, the outdoor enthusiast. To achieve this goal, we've teamed up with backcountry gurus to create an awesome series of maps for backcountry / hiking destinations in BC and Ontario (so far).
Cartographic design is a bit of a black art for a good reason; sure, there are best practices and such but ask yourself, what's the right way to design a map? You tell me.
With our simple goal to design and publish the best backcountry maps possible, we use a combination of state-of-the-art satellite image processing methods, geographic data analysis and "high mountain" cartographic techniques (and a dash of the "black art" stuff) to produce our trend-setting maps.
