Geomatics is a rapidly expanding branch of geography with concrete applications in areas such as health-care planning, epidemiology, criminology, defense and security, disaster management, environmental and resource monitoring, and urban planning. Geographic information systems (GIS), remote sensing and global positioning systems have also made it easier to capture, manage and visualize geographic information. From producing more efficient transit schedules to mapping disease outbreaks or assessing the seismic or health risks associated to our built environments, geomatics plays an essential role.
