Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    All these are other names of Geomatics except...

    • A.

      Geomatics Engineering

    • B.

      Surveying Engineering

    • C.

      Geospatial Technology

    • D.

      Geological Surveying

    Correct Answer
    D. Geological Surveying
    Explanation
    Geomatics is a field that encompasses various disciplines related to spatial data acquisition, management, analysis, and visualization. Geomatics Engineering, Surveying Engineering, and Geospatial Technology are all names that are commonly associated with the field of Geomatics. However, Geological Surveying is not typically considered a part of Geomatics. Geological Surveying focuses specifically on the study and mapping of geological features and formations, whereas Geomatics has a broader scope that includes other aspects such as remote sensing, GIS, and cartography.

  • 2. 

    All these are the tools and techniques of Geomatics except.

    • A.

      Land Surveying

    • B.

      Remote Sensing

    • C.

      Cartology

    • D.

      Cartography

    Correct Answer
    C. Cartology
    Explanation
    The term "Cartology" is not a recognized discipline or tool in Geomatics. It is likely a typo or a made-up term. The other options, Land Surveying, Remote Sensing, and Cartography, are all well-established tools and techniques used in Geomatics.

    • B.

      Michell Paradis

    • C.

      Michelle Paradis

    • D.

      Michel Paradis

    Correct Answer
    D. Michel Paradis
    Explanation
    Michel Paradis is the correct answer because he introduced geomatics as a new scientific form.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    The term 'Spatial Science' mean 'Geomatics' and it is used in?

    • A.

      Russia

    • B.

      Canada

    • C.

      Australia

    • D.

      America

    Correct Answer
    C. Australia
    Explanation
    Spatial science, also known as geomatics, is a term used to describe the study and analysis of spatial data and its relationship with the Earth's surface. It encompasses various disciplines such as surveying, cartography, remote sensing, and geographic information systems (GIS). Australia is known for its strong focus on spatial science and has a well-developed industry and academic sector dedicated to this field. Therefore, Australia is the correct answer as it is a prominent country where spatial science is used extensively.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    What is the nationality of the Surveyor who introduced the new scientific term? 

    • A.

      France

    • B.

      Greece

    • C.

      Russia

    • D.

      Canada

    Correct Answer
    A. France
    Explanation
    The correct answer is France. This is because the question asks for the nationality of the Surveyor who introduced the new scientific term, and France is the only nationality mentioned in the options.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    These are the Geomatics' Areas of Application except.

    • A.

      Geodesy

    • B.

      Geodynamics

    • C.

      Photogrammetry

    • D.

      Geospatial

    Correct Answer
    D. Geospatial
    Explanation
    Geospatial is the correct answer because it is not an area of application in Geomatics. Geomatics is a field that involves the collection, analysis, and interpretation of spatial data. Geodesy focuses on the measurement and representation of the Earth's surface, Geodynamics deals with the study of the Earth's dynamic processes, and Photogrammetry involves the extraction of information from photographs. However, Geospatial refers to the use of spatial data and technologies for mapping, analysis, and visualization, rather than being a specific application area within Geomatics.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Which of these area of applications best describes field of study that focuses on the process of monitoring and controlling the movement of a craft or vehicle from one place to another?

    • A.

      Navigation

    • B.

      Physics

    • C.

      Geophysics

    • D.

      Geonavigation

    Correct Answer
    A. Navigation
    Explanation
    Navigation is the correct answer because it refers to the field of study that deals with the process of monitoring and controlling the movement of a craft or vehicle from one place to another. It involves techniques and methods used to determine the position, direction, and route of a vehicle, such as ships, aircraft, or spacecraft, to ensure safe and efficient travel. Navigation is essential in various applications, including maritime navigation, aviation navigation, and space navigation.

  • 8. 

    All these are related to Geomatics, identify the odd one.

    • A.

      Construction surveying

    • B.

      Deformation survey

    • C.

      Engineering surveying

    • D.

      Map surveying

    Correct Answer
    D. Map surveying
    Explanation
    The odd one out in this list is "Map surveying" because it does not involve the physical measurement and analysis of land or structures like the other three options. Construction surveying, deformation survey, and engineering surveying all involve gathering data and making precise measurements for various construction and engineering purposes. However, map surveying focuses on the creation and interpretation of maps, which is a different aspect of geomatics that involves cartography and spatial data analysis.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Which of these Areas of Knowledge of Geomatics is related to Physics?

    • A.

      Geodynamics

    • B.

      Geostatics

    • C.

      Geodesy

    • D.

      Hydrography

    Correct Answer
    A. Geodynamics
    Explanation
    Geodynamics is the correct answer because it is the area of knowledge in Geomatics that is related to Physics. Geodynamics focuses on the study of the movement and forces within the Earth's crust, including plate tectonics, earthquakes, and volcanic activity. Physics plays a crucial role in understanding the underlying principles and mechanisms behind these geological phenomena, making Geodynamics closely connected to Physics in the field of Geomatics.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Geomatics first appeared in which of these years?

    • A.

      1982

    • B.

      1983

    • C.

      1981

    • D.

      1984

    Correct Answer
    C. 1981
    Explanation
    Geomatics is a relatively new field that combines geography and information technology to gather, analyze, and interpret spatial data. The question asks for the year when Geomatics first appeared, and the correct answer is 1981. This suggests that Geomatics emerged as a distinct discipline in that year, likely due to advancements in technology and the increasing demand for spatial data analysis.
