INTRODUCTION
Recent advances in Geographical Information
System (GIS) and Remote Sensing (RS)
techniques and availability of satellite data at
affordable cost have provided an opportunity
to acquire the needful information in many
application fields at spatial and temporal
scales. Satellite data and GIS are being used
in various fields of applications including, but
not limited to, environmental studies, urban
and regional planning, geology, agriculture,
energy sector, natural disaster management,
natural resources conservation, information
technology, health sciences, and retail and
marketing. The objective of this training is to
impart knowledge about RS and GIS
techniques to the beginners through lectures
and hands on exercises using state of the art
software. The training participants will be
able to apply this knowledge in their specific
fields.
Training Courses 2011 - 2013
