About Me

Welcome to ThatGeoGuy.ca. I am Jeremy Steward, a grad student, a judoka, geomatics engineer in training, technology enthusiast, and Free Software supporter, amongst other things. Normally you can find me on Twitter @ThatGeoGuy, or hanging out in my lab. Most of my work is based in Digital Imaging Systems, and I specialize in photogrammetric systems, especially with regards to systems involving Time-of-Flight based range cameras (such as the Kinect 2, or SwissRanger cameras).

In the past I've worked on projects involving the Internet-of-Things (IoT), studying reindeer, and much, much more. I enjoy my time learning about many of the technologies that are (or will be) powering our world. I encourage you to check out my blog, where I entertain some thoughts about technology or just things I find interesting.

Geomatics

Geomatics is a portmanteau of Geospatial Informatics, which basically means taking spatial information (e.g. position, location, distance, geometry) and using it to solve problems. It's a very broad field, and comprises a wide collection of technologies and methods. Some of these are:

  • Digital Imaging (2D Image Analysis)
  • Photogrammetry (3D Point Reconstruction from 2D Images)
  • Geospatial Information Systems (Think map mashups and combining regular data with location)
  • Location Based Services (Smartphones, Geo-web services)
  • Remote Sensing (Satellites, Medical Imaging, etc...)
  • Internet-of-Things (IOT)
  • Conventional Surveying (get out in the field and measure, measure, measure)
