What is Geospatial Engineering

What is Geospatial Engineering?

Geospatial Engineering includes surveying, mapping and GIS. It allows us to measure, map and monitor the earth. 

Airborne LiDAR

Airborne LiDAR

LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) is a type of laser scanning which is used to rapidly scan the terrain usually from an aircraft. It is also known as Airborne laser scanning (ALS).

The Role of Geospatial Engineeering in Climate Change

Geospatial Engineering in Climate Change

Geospatial engineering techniques, such as Earth observation data and high-resolution satellite imagery are vital for monitoring, analysing and effectively planning to mitigate the effects of climate change

GNSS

GNSS

GNSS stands for Global Navigation Satellite System and is the collective term for satellite-based navigation systems which allow users to determine the position of a receiver anywhere in the world.

Find out more about Hydrographic Surveying

  Hydrographic Surveying

Hydrographic surveying is a specialised role which requires knowledge of the marine environment, global positioning systems and underwater acoustics.

Laser Scanning

Laser Scanning

Terrestrial laser scanning is a popular surveying method that can accurately
measure angles and distances to a point on a surface, such as the ground,
buildings and monuments.
