Geomatics is a modern scientific term to describe an integrated approach to the acquisition, analysis, storage, distribution, management and application of spatially-referenced data. It embraces the traditional areas of surveying and mapping, such as geodesy, cadastral surveying, photogrammetry and hydrography, as well as the comparatively new fields of satellite navigation, remote sensing and spatial information systems. All of them require a high degree of computer literacy.
