In order to round-out the discussion on geomatics, we feel that it is helpful to include some guidance on implementing geomatics into projects or an enterprise. Introducing new views, processes, or technology in general is always uncomfortable. Our intention with this chapter is to provide a framework and general checklist of some of the strategies and pitfalls when it comes to implementing geomatic technology and processes. Hopefully, this way geomatics does not seem so distant and mysterious to new users and collaborators.

In our discussion, we consider an implementation as a move towards spatial data management and the geomatic tools and processes that would support engineering. Simply using GIS software to make maps would not be considered an implementation. The following discussion is broken into two main parts; first, organizational or enterprise implementations and second, implementation for pipeline projects.
