The mathematics of the earth; the science of the collection, analysis, and interpretation of data, especially instrumental data, relating to the earth's surface. (Oxford English Dictionary)
Geomatics Engineering is a modern discipline, which integrates acquisition, modelling, analysis, and management of spatially referenced data, i.e. data identified according to their locations. Based on the scientific framework of geodesy, it uses terrestrial, marine, airborne, and satellite-based sensors to acquire spatial and other data. It includes the process of transforming spatially referenced data from different sources into common information systems with well-defined accuracy characteristics.
A Geomatics Engineer uses knowledge coming from several disciplines, such as:
Modelling spatial geometry, making observations and estimating spatial positions and their uncertainty is a key component of the Geomatics Engineering education. Since the world of Geomatics is constantly evolving, it is also essential to keep up with the rapid growth of the know-how, methods and tools of this interdisciplinary field.
Geomatics Engineering education thus opens to you the gates of very challenging, interesting and different career profiles… All you have to do is choose!!
