Gordon McElravy

Principal, McElravy & Associates Inc.

Mr. McElravy has a well-established reputation in the Geospatial Industry, having acquired numerous years of working experience on a broad range of Geospatial Projects. During his career, he has held senior positions in industry, post-secondary education, and government. His professional career focused heavily on government where he assisted various jurisdictions with disseminating their geospatial CAD / GIS asset data within their corporate data enterprise and beyond.

Recent developments in the geospatial industry pertaining to 3D Visualization and ‘Intelligent Modeling’ of infrastructure - which supports ‘Open Data’ sharing principles, provides a much broader data content footprint, and more ‘intelligent’ data structure environment than that which exists in the traditional GIS Geospatial Corporate Enterprise. This broader geospatial footprint he calls ‘Big Geospatial’, a merging of CAD, GIS and BIM within a 3D Homogeneous Data Visualization - in support of Sustainable Infrastructure and Cities. 

As an ardent advocate of ‘Open Data’ he works with organizations to assist them in understanding the transitional process necessary to support a ‘Big Geospatial’ data enterprise and its potential in the development of SMART Infrastructure and Cities.
