Geoinformatics uses information science and technology to investigate geography, cartography and geoscience.

This is different from Geomatics (often listed along with geographic information) which is related to the integration and management of geographic data and focuses more so on surveying. Geoinformatics is a broader term covering database management systems, programming, remote sensing, cartography, geostatistics, aerial photography, hydrology and Cryosphere studies.
