In Geomatics, Should you Specialize or Diversify?

Probably something many of us in the geomatics sector often come across in our careers is whether or not we should be highly specialized on a specific geomatics aspect or should we diversify and become competent in a multitude of geomatics related disciplines.

Now, one particular problem with being really specialized in something is that although you become an expert in something you can often be too focused, and potentially closing other doors or limiting possible career paths. When you diversify you can still become specialized in things but at a lesser extent yet work with more components of the industry.
