Geomatics is the science and technology of gathering, analyzing, distributing and using information related to space - often referred to as geo-info. Examples of geo-info include: topographic maps, aeronautical and nautical charts, geological, agricultural and forestry maps, legal surveys, cadastral surveying, aerial photography and satellite imagery, among other products.
From high-end Global Positioning Systems (GPS) technology to state of the art aerial remote sensing techniques, the Geomatics sector in Alberta leads the world in innovation. Encompassing a range of disciplines, the Geomatics community in Alberta is active in all sectors including industry, government and educational institutions.
The Alberta Geomatics Group (AGG)
acts as a facilitator to promote geomatics innovations among the sectors and support business development opportunities. The association was formed in July 1998 to facilitate the profitable development and growth of the Alberta Geomatics industry within Alberta, Canada and internationally.
