Geomatics addresses land information collection and management through field survey, photogrammetric, remote sensing, satellite positioning and other techniques. Spatial information collected is then integrated into digital land or geographic information systems and made suitable for use and analysis. Geomatics students learn how the Earth is measured, how Earth-based data are analyzed and how these data are integrated into forms and systems that people can use. Students gain hands-on experience working with field equipment and in high tech classrooms. Present land values, rates of urban development and environmental concerns require a broadly educated person to develop, manage and apply land information. Surveyors and mappers, the practicing component of geomatics, provide these professional services to society.
