Inside this fall’s edition we celebrate the transition to the ultimate year of the Geothink partnership research grant.
We also bring updates on recent Geothink research, including the announcement of Geothink Student Shelley Cook as the awardee of the Dr. Alexander Aylett Scholarship in Urban Sustainability and Innovation.

Issue 10 is finally out! Inside you will find another update on Geothink academic research. Our Summer Institute 2016 and AGM 2016 have recently been concluded. Stay tuned for more posts and Issue 11 that will cover the two events.
For our last update of 2015, we have a Research Profile of Dr. Claus Rinner (Ryerson University) and his recently graduated Ph.D. student Victoria Fast. The Geothink Newsletter will return in Q1 2016 with more updates on Geothink. Until then, we wish you all a good holiday season.
Inside, we speak with our partners at the City of Edmonton about their innovative Open City Initiative, bid farewell to Nova Scotia Community Counts (NSCC), learn about the users of the NSCC data, examine the best practices for countries’ open data portals and more!

This Geothink newsletter brings an update for the end of the 2014 year. Inside you’ll find an interview with our partner in the City of Kitchener, highlights from our research team at the University of British Columbia Okanagan, information about two of our Rapid Response Think Tank projects on Open Data Implementation and Geospatial Metadata Standards, and more!
We are working on increasing our media presence, so you can look forward to more media content that will highlight Geothink research. Finally, Geothink students will be hosting more online discussions, such as webinars and Twitter chats. We hope to make these discussion accessible (in terms of content) to everyone in the grant, regardless of your field. Discussions are not restricted to students, so if you are a partner or collaborator and have a topic you wish to host a discussion on, just contact us to set it up.
