About Training

Geographic Information System (GIS) and Remote Sensing (RS) technology has predominantly changed our understanding of the world we live in and its varied features. Thematic map making is the fundamental purpose of remote sensing. Global Positioning System (GPS) is yet another innovation for identifying the location of any feature. Today, these three advances, Remote sensing, GIS and GPS comprise a ground-breaking blend known as Geoinformation Technology. This hands-on training exposes the participants to create, edit, visualize and analyse Geospatial Information and apply this learning to work on a vast range of projects where GIS technology is used.
