GeoMobiel offers teaching materials about geomatics for students of the 3th grade of secondary school, so they get in touch with the possibilities and opportunities of geography and geomatics. The project wants to stimulate young people to choose for jobs like surveyor, GIS-expert, geo-ICT-expert. Geography researchers of UGent, VUB and KU Leuven have developed a package with teaching material and practical exercises in four topics of geomatics: GIS & geomarketing: locate the best spot for a shopping center; Land survey and GPS: be a surveyor for one day; Remote sensing: How green is the city of Brussels?; Photogrammetry: How can I measure the height of a building with two photos?
