INTRODUCTION TO GEOSPATIAL TECHNOLOGIES AND ARCGIS INTERFACE

Geospatial Technologies & ArcGIS

Geospatial technology is an umbrella phrase associated with a range of various technologies which include remote sensing, Global Positioning System (GPS), Geographic Information System (GIS), information technologies, and field sensors, that are intended to facilitate the process of capturing/storing/ processing/displaying/ disseminating information tied to a location. Geospatial technologies with proven capabilities for supporting decision making can effectively support governance, enable sustainable development, assist in better management of business process as well as bring location-based information closer to the people. This present course offers an opportunity for the students to understand the basics of geospatial technology for developing an interest in the principles, practical uses, and resources related to geospatial technologies. With the exponential growth of world’s geospatial market, this initiative is intended to develop the pool of manpower trained in this subject. This course will enable the students to get an insight into the diverse geospatial database concepts, creating and implementing of the same, GIS theory and spatial analysis. Also, it will help the students to acquire skills for further studies and to enter the professional world. This course offers professional education dealing with mapping and Geospatial production to ensure that students obtain insight into Geospatial database concepts, creating and implementing database, spatial analysis through both theoretical concepts and supported by extensive practical exercise using ArcGIS software.
