CERTIFICATE COURSE ON GEOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION SYSTEM AND REMOTE SENSING

Geo-informatics technology is basically comprises of Remote Sensing (RS), Geographic Information System (GIS) and Global Positioning System (GPS). Nowadays Geographic Information System and Remote Sensing are playing a crucial role in our environmental development, urbanization, geological studies, mineral exploration, watershed management, forest management, disaster management etc. GIS and RS have emerged as key instruments for retrieving data and information on the earth. It is an urgent need to understand the specialized capabilities of an ever expanding technology which helps us to learn more about our world. GIS and Remote Sensing technologies are experiencing exponential growth. This explosive growth will create exciting careers for geologists and geo scientists where highly skilled professionals will lead innovative projects.
