Had a bit of an unexpected experience this morning. I attended a presentation at Encana where they were showing work they had done on using GIS and volumetric calculations.
The interesting thing is that it was at the Bow, the tallest building in Canada outside of Toronto, on the 54th floor ( out of 58 ). Here’s a picture from the atrium, looking down on the Calgary Tower:
The theatre for the presentation was at the curved end of the floor, and had floor-to-ceiling windows showing the view to the south:
The room was top centre of this photo.
It was almost like being in an airplane. In fact, after the presentation, I happened to look out the window east and saw the Snowbirds jets taking off from the airport and climbing out to the south and they were level with me.
My ears popped on the elevator rides up and down.
