Geomatics is a modern discipline that consists of collecting, analyzing, processing, and distributing information focused geographic data. These disciplines including mapping, surveying, remote sensing, global positioning system (GPS) and geographic information systems (GIS) come together to give us a detailed understanding of the physical world. Geomatic disciplines have recently become one of the fastest-growing technological information sectors. Below you can find resources to the various aspects of geomatics.
