In the last half-century, the knowledge and understanding of the problems generated by the climate variations have been facilitated by a spectacular evolution of monitoring techniques based on evolved means of acquisition, processing and interpretation of geospatial data. In parallel, but at a slower pace, the training methods specific to geomatics were given due importance in education. Faced with the real needs to process geospatial data applied to agriculture and the environment and the opportunities of creating many jobs in the sector of spatial environmental information, universities need teachers. But, in a large number of cases, they have been formed imperfectly and sometimes convey an approximate and questionable formation. Therefore, it is essential to establish a solid quality training based on an original approach in geomatics applied to agriculture, environment and sustainable development. The ERASMUS+ project “Capacity building in the field of geomatics applied to agriculture and environment in Tunisia (GEOMAG)” is an example of a modern approach to the way of effective training, developed in synergy with the rapid progress of the geospatial domain.
