Season’s greetings from everyone here at Cybera!

The holidays are just around the corner, and Cybera will have a holiday closure of its offices in both Edmonton and Calgary. Offices will be closed from December 23 to January 2 inclusive. All emails and inquiries will be addressed on Tuesday, January 3.

Over the holidays, why not check out Cybera's December 2011 newsletter? In this month's edition, Cybera is pleased to announce its role in the development of the Community Health Immunization Program (CHIP) —€” a collaboration between Cybera, Okaki Health Intelligence and Pfizer. This ground-breaking program has digitized more than 30,000 paper immunization records for residents of four First Nations communities in Alberta. Another three communities are expected to come online in early in the new year, with additional growth planned throughout 2012. 

The December newsletter also includes final updates on the Geospatial Cyberinfrastructure for Environmental Sensing (GeoCENS) project and the Cloud-Enabled Space Weather Modelling and Data Assimilation Platform (CESWP). Cybera's role in both of these projects comes to an end on December 31. Lastly, a third Cybera-managed project —€” the Water and Environmental Hub (WEHUB) —€” reached an important milestone this month. Sourcing, sharing and using public Canadian water and environmental data has just gotten a lot easier.
