Remote Sensing and Geographic Information System (GIS) were initially recognized as supporting tools for planning, monitoring, and management of appropriate utilisation of the earth resources. However, due to their multidisciplinary applications and integration with other numerous scientific and technological fields, in the recent years they became a distinct field of study.
Remote sensing is basically the use of instruments or sensors to view the spectral and spatial relations of observable objects and materials at a distance. Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) is the standard generic term for satellite navigation systems (such as GPS, GLONASS, etc.) that provide autonomous geospatial positioning information with global coverage. GIS is a computer-assisted information management system of geographically referenced data. The need for systems that monitor the changing land-use, search and protect natural resources, and track interactions within the biosphere, atmosphere, hydrosphere, and geosphere has become a paramount concern to scientists, planners, managers, politicians, and the general citizens as well. The rapid progress and increased visibility of remote sensing, GNSS, and GIS since 1990s has been made possible by paradigm shift in the areas of computer technology, computer science, and software engineering, as well as airborne and space-borne earth observation technologies. As a result, a new field of study, namely Geospatial Technology or Geoinformatics, is now in its maturity. Geoinformatics is now the ultimate tool for observation, monitoring and management of the earth and its resources. Due to a growing realisation that spatial information is an invaluable resource and that highly skilled individuals are needed to create, manage and analyse it, employment opportunities abound.
