What is… Geographic Science?
It is Geography brought to life! Another name for Geographic Science is Geomatics.
Locational (spatial) information must be collected, processed and managed to produce maps, construction drawings and models. The professional responsible for this is a Geomatics Surveyor. We model, analyse and manage information from many sources. This provides us with lots of exciting career opportunities at home and abroad. We use interesting cutting-edge technologies including satellites, drones, laser scanners, aerial cameras and advanced surveying and computing to collect and manage our data.
