Laboratory of Geomatics & Topography

Located in Building A6 (Floor S1, Room 106) of UPC_BarcelonaTech's Campus Nord, the Laboratory of Geomatics & Topography is part of the Geotechnical Engineering & Geosciences section of the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering. Geomatics focuses on the gathering, processing, storage and treatment of geographic information. The main devices and systems of the laboratory are, among others: Electronic total stations and survey levels, precision GPS/GNSS receivers, terrestrial laser scanners (Optech and Leica TLS).


Laboratory dedicated mainly to the teaching of geomatics courses of the bachelor's and master's degrees of Barcelona School of Civil Engineering (field work). The laboratory's equipment is also used for the development of Bachelor's and Master's final theses.


The research group associated with the laboratory (EGEO) works in the field of geomatic engineering. As it is a cross-sectional area, the methods and techniques of this field are applied to other areas such as civil engineering, risk management, management and representation of heritage, etc. with special attention to new sensors and techniques for gathering, processing, storage and treatment of geographic information.
