Geo Tools: Geomatics Acronyms and Abbreviations
Geomatics has become a pretty common term in Canada lately and includes many different disciplines such as geographic information systems (GIS), remote sensing, cartography, land surveying, global navigation satellite systems (GNSS), photogrammetry, geography and other related forms of spatial mapping.
Using acronyms and abbreviations is commonly practiced in the Geomatics industry and most of the time people just assume that everybody else knows what every acronyms and abbreviation stands for. Well that is obviously not the case most of the time and over the years I have created myself a little digital cheat-sheet of geomatics acronyms and abbreviations that I use with my work in my writing.
Below is a large collection of common acronyms and abbreviations related to the Canadian Geomatics industry that I have compiled over the years and published on my Canadian GIS and Geomatics site http://canadiangis.com/geomatics-acronyms-and-abbreviations.php
