Geomatics is a rapidly expanding branch of geography with concrete applications in areas such as health-care planning, epidemiology, criminology, defence and security, disaster management, environmental and resource monitoring, and urban planning. Geographic information systems (GIS) have also made it easier to capture, manage and visualize geographic information. From producing more efficient transit schedules to mapping disease outbreaks in areas affected by the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami or Hurricane Katrina in 2005, geomatics plays an essential role.
