About the Journal

With its international scientific commitments, Revue Internationale de Géomatique (RIG), gathers numerous research works from many countries and disciplines, such as geography, computer science, archeology, agronomy and social sciences. All these research projects require or develop approaches, methods or tools to solve, analyse or represent spatial problems on the geographical space. The journal involves different topics, from spatial object modelling to geospatial prospective, from sensors used in accurate imagery to territorial decision making. The articles can be application- oriented, or deal with theoretical or methodological issues. Thus, RIG allows a fruitful combination of technological features (e.g. Geographical Information Systems, high resolution remote sensing) and human purpose and behaviour in spatial analysis (e.g. participatory Geographical Information Systems, territorial planning). Geomatics also concerns many questions about our environment in the context of global change and sustainability, such as biodiversity, conservation, transport, mobility and land use. Most of the articles published in RIG are resulting from a strong co-operation between different institutes and disciplines, often coupling particular themes (micro-agronomy, coastal studies, mountainous development, for instance) and associated methodologies to design appropriate solutions from computer and geographical information sciences (generalize and matching geometries, spatial metadata management, spatial ontologies, etc.). Regularly published since 1991, Revue Internationale de Géomatique (RIG) publishes original articles in Sciences of Geographical Information, in French or in English.

    Mapping of Land Use and Land Cover (LULC) Using EuroSAT and Transfer Learning

    Revue Internationale de Géomatique, Vol.33, pp. 1-13, 2024, DOI:10.32604/rig.2023.047627
    (This article belongs to the Special Issue: Applications of Artificial Intelligence in Geomatics for Environmental Monitoring)
    Abstract As the global population continues to expand, the demand for natural resources increases. Unfortunately, human activities account for 23% of greenhouse gas emissions. On a positive note, remote sensing technologies have emerged as a valuable tool in managing our environment. These technologies allow us to monitor land use, plan urban areas, and drive advancements in areas such as agriculture, climate change mitigation, disaster recovery, and environmental monitoring. Recent advances in Artificial Intelligence (AI), computer vision, and earth observation data have enabled unprecedented accuracy in land use mapping. By using transfer learning and fine-tuning with red-green-blue More >

    Contributions of Remote Sensing and GIS to the Inventory and Mapping of Colonial Geodetic Markers in the Katangese Copper Belt

    Revue Internationale de Géomatique, Vol.33, pp. 15-35, 2024, DOI:10.32604/rig.2024.046629
    Abstract The mutation of spaces observed in the Katangese Copper Belt (KCB) causes significant topographical changes. Some colonial geodetic markers are easily noticeable on many of the hills making up the KCB. These hills are subject to mining which ruins the completeness of the network of triangulations: geometric and trigonometric Katangese. In order to keep control of the latter, the study shows on the one hand the possibility of using SRTM data (Shuttle Radar Topography Mission) in the monitoring of the macro-change of the reliefs, from 442 positions, and on the other hand, an indirect (remote) More >

    Assessment of Particle Matter Pollution during Post-Earthquake Debris Removal in Adiyaman City

    Revue Internationale de Géomatique, Vol.33, pp. 37-50, 2024, DOI:10.32604/rig.2024.047908
    Abstract Severe earthquakes in the world and in Turkey can cause great loss of life and property, environmental problems and health problems. In addition to the loss of life and property, earthquakes are closely related to ecosystems, air, water, and soil pollution. Particularly in post-earthquake debris removal, very large amounts of particulate matter are released and may have negative effects on the health of the local population. This study aimed to detect two types of particle matter pollution during debris removal in 25 different locations in Adiyaman City using a CEM DT 9880 particle matter measuring… More >

    Vers une transformation géométrique géocentrique des espaces urbains : la ville vue à partir du ou des centre(s)

    Revue Internationale de Géomatique, Vol.33, pp. 77-92, 2024, DOI:10.32604/rig.2024.046591
    Abstract La théorie égocentrée est aujourd’hui bien connue des éthologues et des psychologues mais moins diffusée chez les géographes car elle reste encore à l’état de théorie abstraite. Ce papier se propose dans un premier temps de rendre opérationnel cette approche dans le cadre de travaux géographiques à l’échelle de l’individu. Puis, elle envisage d’établir le lien entre l’échelle individu et l’échelle de la ville avec comme objectif de produire des cartes déformées de la ville. More >
