The University of Florida Geomatics program in the School of Forest, Fisheries, and Geomatics Sciences (FFGS) provides a diverse surveying, mapping, and GIS education portfolio. Program offerings include:
1) an ABET-accredited BS degree in Geomatics with two unique specializations (Professional Surveying & Mapping, Geospatial Analysis),
2) certificates in Geomatics, Geospatial Analysis, and Mapping with Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS), and
3) MS/PhD degrees with concentrations in Geomatics and GIS.
Our research programs reflect the diversity of our students and faculty as well as our strong collaboration with colleagues inside and outside FFGS. Woven throughout our vibrant research programs is our technical expertise in UAS sensor integration, calibration, and data analysis. This proficiency is applied to numerous precision agriculture and natural resource management remote sensing projects funded by both private and public sector sources. Key governmental partners include the US Department of Agriculture, US Geological Survey, and National Geodetic Survey.
