Current trend is towards the integration of different geospatial technologies. 
Geospatial technology as it is more commonly known, is such a multidisciplinary 
tool that there are now advanced degrees in specific subjects such as GIS. The 
current development and expected growth of geospatial technologies have earned 
it a place as one of the emerging technologies. The connection between 
geospatial technologies and information and communication system and technology 
runs deep. Geomatics exposes them to modern, cutting edge and innovative 
information system and technologies. Even geospatial technology has had its own 
free and open source software movement in the open source geospatial foundation 
(OSGeo). Geospatial projects for web mapping, desktop applications, geospatial 
libraries and metadata catalogue. There has been a significant growth in 
geospatial technologies applications in recent years. There is a major increase 
in the availability of remote sensing imagery with increasing spatial, 
temporal, radiometric and spectral resolutions. Further enhanced the growth and 
development of geomatics applications. Despite the increasing utilization of 
geospatial technologies in different fields like geography, earth science, 
space science, digital and communications, medical and medicine, public health, 
climate change. Geomatics exposes to modern, cutting edge and innovative 
information system and technologies. Like field of medical geographic 
information systems extremely useful in understanding the bigger picture of 
public health. Geospatial technology such as GIS has many useful applications 
for surveying, photogrammetry, remote sensing, mapping, geographic information 
systems (GIS), geodesy and global navigation satellite system (GNSS), Drone, 
UAV. The applications of geomatics are in the fields of precision farming, 
urban planning, facilities management, business geographics, security and 
intelligence, automated mapping, real estate management, environmental 
management, land administration, telecommunication, automated machine control, 
civil engineering and so on.

This book will aim to provide relevant theoretical frameworks and the latest 
empirical research findings in the area. It will be written for professionals 
who want to improve the understanding of geospatial current and future 
methodologies and technologies, giving a complete overview of common problems 
and solutions to search geospatial resources. This will provide professionals, 
interested in the development of geospatial applications, techniques to design 
and deploy geospatial resources in Information Infrastructures to increase the 
interoperability and the visibility of these resources to maximize re-usability.

Target Audience
The target audience of this book will be composed of professionals and 
researchers working in the field of geospatial information infrastructures, 
knowledge management and information integration in various disciplines, e.g. 
information and communication sciences, geospatial sciences like environment, 
urban planning, education and sociology and disaster management.
