GATE 2022 Geomatics Engineering Paper Analysis | Key Highlights and Questions

APSEd brings you a special analysis of GATE 2022 Geomatics Engineering [GATE GE] conducted on 13th Feb. This GATE Geomatics paper was introduced this year by IIT Kharagpur. A total of 10,000 aspirants were expected to appear for the paper.

If you love remote sensing, geographical data and want to pursue it as a career, this paper could open doors for you.

Students had a mixed opinion on the level of the paper; But definitely, not too many surprises and the questions were in line with the initial expectations.

Overall Analysis of GATE 2022 Geomatics Engineering

GATE 2022 GE paper being introduced for the first time, the only source of information we had to access beforehand were the GE syllabus and sample paper.

  • The paper had more theoretical questions, which was expected in line with Geomatics model paper released by IIT KGP

  • A clear understanding of topics was required to attempt the questions. There were a few tricky questions as well.

  • We stressed more on MSQs in our GE tests with about 5-6 questions in our full-length tests. It turned out to be useful, as the GATE paper had about 9-10 MSQs

  • Aptitude turned out to be easy, and section B was relatively easier with direct questions were asked from these subjects.

  • Many students found the statistical questions from engineering maths slightly on the tougher side.

Overall the paper was in line with the expectation, and is from easy-moderate level.

We can expect a higher cutoff about 34-38 for GN category. This is considering the fact the paper was as expected, and generally papers like this which is written by around 10,000 students or lesser tend to have a higher cutoff.

Subject-wise Weightage GATE 2022 Geomatics Engineering

APSEd full-length test pattern was very close to the GATE 2022 Geomatics pattern. Section A which is the common syllabus, in this 36 questions are asked for 55 marks. Engineering Maths, Remote Sensing, GNSS and GIS are the subjects in this section.

Either section of Part B (Section I or Section II) consists of 19 questions carrying a total of 30 marks: 8 questions carrying 1-mark each (sub-total 8 marks) and 11 questions carrying 2-marks each (subtotal 22 marks).

Part B- Section I (Optional): Maps, Land Surveying, Aerial Photogrammetry

Part B- Section II (Optional): Data Quantization and Processing, Digital Image Processing, Radiometric and Geometric Corrections, Image Enhancement, Image Transformation, Image Segmentation and Classification

GATE 2022 Geomatics Questions

Some of the questions that were asked in GATE 2022 Geomatics are

  • Which error can be corrected by DGPS

  • In GIS, reclassification means

  • Order of Electromagnetic Spectrum wavelength increasing order

  • Finding number of images - photogrammetry

  • Thermal infrared images

  • Principle of surveying, Bowditch Relationship

  • Question on Tacheometry

  • Most Probable Value, and other statistical questions

We will update more with the answer key, once the response sheet is out by GATE IIT Kharagpur. Stay tuned.
