This paper provides a personal view of the nature of geomatics and the role of cartography within the field of geomatics. Education in cartography is addressed and an attempt is made to determine suitable developments in syllabus content which can be proposed to ensure the continued relevance of cartography to geomatic educators and employers. It is also suggested that educators have a duty to shape the future of geomatics and to ensure that it flourishes amidst the constant change evident in the development of the 'information age'.
