  • Triangulation Program - 2014

    A Triangulation system consists of a series of joined and overlapping triangles in which only one line (Base Line) is measured. All the angles are measured, and the remaining sides are calculated from angles. Knowing the true bearing of any one line, the bearings of all other lines can be calculated from the angles. The coordinates of all triangulation stations are then determined from the coordinates of any one given station. The vertices of the individual triangles are the triangulation stations.

Welcome to the Faculty of Geomatics

The Faculty of Geomatics is one of the six Faculties of the Sabaragamuwa University of Sri Lanka  and was established in 2004. It is the successor to the Department of Surveying Sciences, which  introduced the BSc (Surveying Sciences) Degree Programme in 1997. This was the first time in the  history of the university system in Sri Lanka that such a degree programme was introduced by a  university fulfilling a much felt need of the country. The Degree Programme is a four-year course  leading to a special degree. The first batch of students were admitted to the degree programme in  1997 and graduated in 2002. Presently, the faculty has a student population of about 250 with the  aim of producing 60 graduates annually and this year intake is 74  The Faculty, with its predecessor, Department of Surveying Science, has a history of over 18 years  with a total of over 529 students graduating since 2002. 

At present, the faculty consists of two Departments:

(a) Department of Surveying and Geodesy
(b) Department of Remote Sensing and GIS
