This is an interesting discussion and lecture which gets interesting around the 12 minute mark
It's true. Don't believe me? Go out onto the street and ask them about Geomatics. You'll get some weird looks. The video above was from a talk I gave to the SAIT Geomatics Engineering Technology class in early December 2012. My goal with the presentation wasn't to scare them away from Geomatics but to get them to think about Geomatics in a different manner.

I'm not trying to belittle Geomatics. I've been in the industry since 2000 and have staked my entire career on Geomatics. I have an engineering degree in Geomatics and own a Geomatics company (but I don't call it a Geomatics company) so my stake in Geomatics is pretty high. But I think the Geomatics industry needs to evolve. I think the industry needs to stop thinking about Geomatics being something unique, in its own industry, requiring its own set of fancy words to describe what it does.
