As the word suggests, geomatics has to do with geographical data collection and management. It includes both traditional surveying and modern digital mapping sciences. Technology has been advancing rapidly including innovations such as GIS (computerized Geographical Information Systems) and GPS (Global Positioning Systems). The application of such systems in industry is far-reaching and powerful, from offshore petroleum production to modern management of the fishery, hydro development and the construction industry, to name a few. This program is designed to train graduates who will become the senior field members of various survey teams or supervisors in digital data management, analysis and presentation. Students will be exposed to theory in the classroom as well as considerable field and office experience during labs, field camps and work terms.
