Geomatics is defined in the ISO/TC 211 series of standards as the "discipline concerned with the collection, distribution, storage, analysis, processing, presentation of geographic data or geographic information". Geomatics includes the tools and techniques used in land surveying, remote sensing, cartography, geographic information systems (GIS), global-navigation satellite systems (GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, Compass), photogrammetry, geophysics, geography, and related forms of earth mapping. A geospatial network is a network of collaborating resources for sharing and coordinating geographical data and data tied to geographical references.
Geomatics engineers apply engineering principles to spatial information and implement relational data structures involving measurement sciences, thus using geomatics and acting as spatial information engineers. Geomatics engineers manage local, regional, national and global spatial data infrastructures.
In recent years, geographic information technologies have become very important. The demand of the company has indeed greatly increased, in terms of scientific description and precise territories. ENSG-Geomatics offers a wide range of highly sought-after specializations in various fields.
The geomatic approach is in essence multifaceted and multidisciplinary. It gives access to the three main professional communities concerned by geographic information technologies and their applications:
