Geoinformatics is a science which develops and uses information science infrastructure to address the problems of geosciences and related branches of engineering.
The three main tasks of geoinformatics are:
- development and management of databases of geodata, georeferences and other GIS objects
- analysis and modeling of geodata
- development and integration of computer tools and software for the first two tasks.
