Geomatician job description

Geoinformation is an important resource in the 21st century. It is only possible to carry out decisions reliably and assess their consequences with a more precise understanding of the area, its condition, use and development.

Geoinformation is an essential foundation to depict and analyse legal, technical, social, spatial planning, environmental and economic circumstances in spatially limited areas.
For this purpose, it is necessary to gather, process, and present and release the geoinformation or the relevant data. Only qualified specialists can carry out these tasks efficiently and to a high-enough standard. This is why geomaticians are trained together in companies and through external courses.
