About Geodesy and Geoportal
Geodesy or Geodetics engineering is the associated field of geological sciences including applied mathematics and earth sciences with the measurement and understanding of the earth’s shape, orientation and its gravity.
Geodesy is the branch of applied mathematics that deals with the measurement of the shape and area of large tracts of country, the exact position of geographical points, and the curvature, shape, and dimensions of the earth. A geoportal is the basic web portal used to access geographic information and associated geographic services through the Internet.
Geoportal offers the following advanced features in the maps such as Animations playing directly in the map interface, User-editable colour scales for the raster data, Export of animations and maps to KML for use in Google Earth, PDF creation, INSPIRE-compliant view service (WMS) and presents other products for comparison with CARBONES.
