Geomatics Engineers apply engineering principles to create spatial information and use relational data involving measurement science. Geomatics Engineers are special information engineers who manage local, regional, national and global spatial data.
Even in Nepal, prior to seventies, land measurement was carried out by chain survey. It has been already changed now and Department of Survey has already established the National Geo Information Institute (NGII) and created huge digital resources in the country.
Nepalese surveying professionals have to design, develop and operate system for collecting and analyzing spatial information about the mountains, land, natural resources and manmade infrastructures.
