Geomatics – for the Built Environment

Geomatics for the Built Environment provides vital spatial knowledge about the built environment. The science Geomatics is concerned with the acquisition, analysis, management and visualisation of geographic data with the aim of gaining knowledge and a better understanding of the built and natural environments. The programme at  the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment of TU Delft differs from other Geomatics programmes in its broad and interdisciplinary nature and technical depth and its close connection to the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment.

The remote sensing techniques that you will learn in this programme, give you the ability to measure and observe our environment and especially the features that are beyond the capability of the human eye. Data management and analysis techniques allow you to turn these measurements into useful information and knowledge, with which patterns can be identified, behaviour over time can be tracked and the future state can be predicted. You will apply your skills in 3D modelling, GIS, mapping, serious gaming, simulation and visualisation to a wide range of fields, such as disaster management, geodesign, location-based services (LBS) and land administration. Also applications as real time mapping, promoting energy efficiency and investigating and analysing the movement of people belong to the possibilities. 

What will you learn

With Geomatics for the Built Environment you will learn to use advanced techniques in data collection and analysis, spatial information modelling and the visualisation of data. You will gain knowledge about the use, governance and application of geographic data for solving real-world problems in an innovative way. You will become proficient in quickly analysing the needed geospatial information, performing the required processing and analysis steps and producing an appealing visualisation or presentation of your solutions.
