The Geomatics division 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 performs research in coastal engineering, ocean modelling, gravimetric data processing and morphological modelling of coastal zones using state-of-the art technology.

The Geomatics branch participates in national and European research projects and collaborates intensively with Flanders Hydraulics Research, Flanders Marine Institute (VLIZ), Antwerp Maritime Academy, ENSTA (Brest) and HafenCity Hamburg (HCU).
