The Advances in Geomatics (AIG) is a peer-reviewed scientific journal dedicated to the dissemination of cutting-edge research in the field of geomatics. The journal serves as a platform for researchers, academicians, professionals, and practitioners to share their knowledge, insights, and advancements in the multidisciplinary domain of geomatics.

Geomatics, an interdisciplinary field that encompasses various technologies and methodologies for acquiring, managing, analyzing, and visualizing spatial data, plays a crucial role in addressing contemporary challenges related to land use planning, environmental monitoring, natural resource management, urban development, disaster management, and sustainable development, among others. Geomatics integrates principles and techniques from disciplines such as remote sensing, photogrammetry, surveying, geographic information systems (GIS), and spatial analysis to provide spatially referenced information critical for decision-making.

The primary objective of AIG is to foster scientific discourse and innovation in geomatics by publishing high-quality research articles, review papers, and technical notes. The journal covers a wide range of topics in geomatics, including but not limited to:

Geospatial data acquisition: This encompasses the use of remote sensing techniques, global navigation satellite systems (GNSS), terrestrial and airborne laser scanning (LiDAR), photogrammetry, and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) for data acquisition.

Geospatial data processing and analysis: This involves spatial data modeling and representation, geospatial data integration and interoperability, spatial data mining and knowledge discovery, spatial statistics and geostatistics, and the application of machine learning and artificial intelligence in geomatics.

Geospatial data management: This includes topics such as spatial databases and data warehouses, geospatial data quality and uncertainty, spatial data infrastructure and interoperability, big data analytics in geomatics, and geospatial data privacy and security.

Geospatial information systems (GIS): This covers GIS theory, algorithms, and applications, web GIS and mobile GIS, spatial decision support systems, geovisualization and visual analytics, and the implementation of spatial data infrastructure and open geospatial standards.

Geospatial applications: This encompasses the use of geomatics in land administration and cadastral systems, urban and regional planning, environmental monitoring and management, natural resources management, transportation and logistics, and other relevant fields.

Geomatics for sustainable development: This includes the application of geomatics in climate change studies, disaster management and risk assessment, renewable energy and environmental sustainability, indigenous knowledge and cultural heritage mapping, and geomatics for social and economic development.

AIG follows a rigorous peer review process to ensure the publication of high-quality and impactful research. The journal welcomes original contributions that advance the frontiers of geomatics, promote interdisciplinary collaborations, and address emerging challenges in the field. By disseminating knowledge and fostering exchange among researchers and practitioners, AIG aims to contribute to the advancement of geomatics and its applications for the betterment of society.

We invite researchers and practitioners to submit their original research and scholarly work to AIG. For detailed guidelines on manuscript preparation and submission, please refer to the Instructions for Authors section on the journal's website.
