Geomatics Engineering (GEOENGINE) is the key discipline for measuring, modelling and presentation of geospatial data and processes. Recent technological developments such as global satellite navigation, autonomous navigation, driver assistance systems, digital maps, and virtual globes have enhanced public awareness for the fields of geodesy and geoinformatics. GEOENGINE meets the societal demands for a responsible use of available resources and geospatial infrastructures for sustainable development.
