    [automatically translated] Disciplines topographic have in recent years a profound renewal thanks to the development of electronic and information technologies. New instrumentation and methodologies have been produced, increasingly fast, automatic, reliable; just think of the Total Station, GPS, a scanning laser, or the digital cartography, digital photogrammetric techniques to those GIS. A new term has been recently introduced in the technical language, Geomatics, just to identify all of the disciplines that have as their object the acquisition, processing, analysis, visualization and management of spatial information, and include both traditional (Geodesy, Topography, Photogrammetry, Cartography), in an updated version, both those recently established (Remote Sensing, Geographic Information Systems). Obviously, this development have contributed so relevant also the many scholars who with commitment and dedication they have done their research and teaching activities within universities and among these, with a secondary role, even those who have worked at the University of Palermo.
