Explore the Geomatics major and learn cutting-edge technologies while spending time outdoors or online

Filed under Academic & Research, Opportunities on February 26, 2017.
Traditionally known for surveying and mapping, Geomatics also has well-known applications such as Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Global Positioning Systems (GPS), and even Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs/drones).  Geomatics uses technology to detect how and where things are located on Earth, and helps people use this information for a variety of purposes, including establishing  property boundaries, locating and documenting historical buildings, analyzing ecological data to identify potential habitat for endangered species, and designing new roads and other infrastructure.  While studying Geomatics, you could find yourself working inside with computers one day and with laser scanners on a beach the next!
Geomatics currently offers two specializations: Surveying & Mapping and Geospatial Analysis. For more information please visit http://sfrc.ufl.edu/
