Following the close of a transaction between WSP Global and Altus Group last weekend, Canada’s newest surveying and geomatics firm—GeoVerra—opened its doors for business this week.

As part of the transaction, WSP and Altus carved out their geomatics teams to form the newly launched firm, which will provide land surveying, mapping and geospatial technology to a variety of industries, with offices in 29 cities across Western Canada and Ontario.
