Clear the Confusion between Geo Informatics and Geomatics - September 12th, 2011

Key differences between Geo Informatics and Geomatics

Geo informatics mainly deals with structure and nature of spatial information where as geomatics combines the idea of geo informatics with other disciplines such as geodesy.

To differentiate geo informatics and geodesy is really a difficult task but both have its own advantages and benefits.

One needs to understand the opportunities and benefits which help in identifying the advantages, scope and importance of geomatics and geo informatics.
