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.

    An Overview of Modern Cartographic Trends Aligned with the ICA’s Perspective

    Revue Internationale de Géomatique, Vol.32, pp. 1-16, 2023, DOI:10.32604/rig.2023.043399
    Abstract This study provides a comprehensive overview of modern cartography innovations and emerging trends, highlighting the importance of geospatial representation in various fields. It discusses recent advancements in geospatial data collection techniques, including satellite and aerial imagery, Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) technology, and crowdsourcing. The research also investigates the integration of big data, machine learning, and real-time processing in Geographic Information Systems (GIS), as well as advances in geospatial visualization. In addition, it examines the role of cartography in addressing global challenges such as climate change, disaster management, and urban planning in line with the International Cartographic Association’s (ICA) perspectives.… More >
