The Journal of Geospatial Surveying (JGS) is a peer reviewed journal aiming to publish original and fundamental research, and technical developments in the field of Geoinformatics and Surveying, encompassing Land Surveying, Hydrographic Surveying, Remote Sensing, Photogrammetry, Cartography, Geographic Information System, Global Positioning Systems and Land Management. Its goal is to provide a forum for Sri Lankan and international scholars to publish high quality articles dealing with innovations in theoretical, experimental and system design aspects. Research papers submitted for publication should have a sound disciplinary basis, and cross-disciplinary contributions are also encouraged. However, routine applications without significant findings will not be considered for publication. The journal aims to serve both academia and the industry of Geoinformatics and Surveying.
The journal publishes two issues a year.
