Geomatics – for the built environment

Geomatics is a relatively new science concerned with the analysis, acquisition, management, and visualisation of geographic data with the aim of gaining knowledge and better understanding of the built and natural environments. It is also a broad-based and interdisciplinary field of study. Geomatics remote sensing techniques give us the ability to measure and observe our environment and especially the features that are beyond the capability of the human eye. Geomatics data management and analysis techniques allow us to turn these measurements into useful information and knowledge with which we can identify patterns, track feature behaviour over time and predict the future state. To do this, Geomatics combines knowledge of Mathematics, Computer Science, Geodesy, and 3D modelling. The field of Geomatics can be applied to a wide range of (research) fields such as Hydrology, Crisis Management, Serious Gaming and Simulation, Urban Planning, and Land Administration.for more
