Welcome to the Geomatics Program

Geomatics is the study of geospatial measurement and representation including such disciplines as land surveying, photogrammetry, remote sensing (satellite and aerial imaging and laser scanning), geographic information systems (GIS), cartography, global positioning systems (GPS), and some parts of geography and civil engineering.

Geomatics or land surveying and mapping has grown to encompass a discipline which integrates acquisition, modeling, analysis, and management of geospatial reference data. Based on the scientific framework of geodesy, it uses terrestrial, marine, airborne, satellite-based sensors, and measurement systems and technologies to acquire spatial and other data.

Geomatics includes investigation, analysis, and application of boundary/property laws and legal principles pertaining to specific public and private properties. A licensed surveyor has the obligation to protect the public and private interests in these matters.
