|The Geomatics division of Ghent University is a cooperation of the research groups ‘Cartography and GIS’ and ‘3D Data Acquisition’. The Cartography and GIS research group performs both fundamental and applied research on several aspects of cartography and geographical information sciences, applied to marine and coastal research. The emphasis lies on flood risk and effect calculations and the development of cross-domain data models. The 3D Data Acquisition research group owns a broad range of acquisition tools for the measurement of beaches and shallow waters. The group is actively involved in 3D littoral and marine modelling and the development of specific problem-solving algorithms.
The Geomatics branch participates in national and European research projects and collaborates intensively with Flanders Hydraulics Research, Antwerp Maritime Academy, ENSTA (Brest) and HafenCity Hamburg (HCU).
