A broad range of geomatic capabilities are brought together for Earth and planetary science studies in the Geosciences and Engineering Division (GED) at Southwest Research Institute (SwRI). These geomatics capabilities broadly include:
- Optical and radar remote sensing for Earth and planetary sciences
- Geospatial data management and mapping
