Geoinformatics is a rapidly evolving field that brings meaningful insights to solve real world problems by bringing together technologies and tools required for acquisition, exploration, visualization, analysis and integration of various spatial data. There are several components of Geoinformatics that include cartographic geovisualization, GIS, Remote sensing, photogrammetry, GPS, spatial statistics, geostatistics, multivariate statistics and other advanced tools and techniques. Spatial and non-spatial datasets are crucial for studies on environmental and sustainable development planning. World-wide, geoinformatics tool is being used in a large number of mega projects for better planning and management of resources. The emerging need of geospatial technology has created an unprecedented demand of trained manpower, who can contribute to production and analysis of these datasets. Geoinformatics combines photogrammetry, remote sensing, image processing as well as other digital spatial data collection methods, like GPS, field measurements, digitizing and scanning of maps, spatial data analysis algorithms and geographical data management, and visualization. This paper highlights the growing uses and applications of geoinformatics in planning and management of infrastructure and resources in India and world-wide.
