If you want to become a specialist in geomatics, you should have an above-average interest in geo-scientific topics as well as good math skills and an interest in computer science and physics. The Geomatics programme is offered by Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences.


Geomatics is a modern and self-contained subject including the areas geo-information, geoscience, engineering, and ICT. It involves the acquisition, processing, modeling, analysis, and visualization of spatially referenced data. This affects the geometry as well as physical and socioeconomic features of our Earth, spatial information infrastructures of the built and natural environments, and the simulation of geospatial processes. The data originates from many different sources, including satellites, air and seaborne sensors, ground-based measurements, surveys and statistics, and analogue maps. Today’s methods make extensive use of GNSS, often involving the crowd.

The data is processed with state-of-the-art information and communication technologies (ICT), often in geographical information systems (GIS) and based on a broad spectrum of mathematical algorithms and models. Thus, Geomatics plays an important role for products and services which depend on geospatial data and spatial computing. Nowadays it has an impact on numerous disciplines including environmental management, land development and planning, engineering, geo-sciences and life sciences, traffic, logistics, and utilities.
