Advance Level Training on Application of GIS and Remote Sensing


0 year(s)


The Geographical Information System (GIS) and Remote Sensing (RS) are helpful scientific toolsto analyze the earth system, phenomenon and characteristics of the objects on the earth. The RS and GIS help to explore spatial information captured by the satellite or scanned images.

These days, GIS and Remote Sensing are considered as reliable and convincing tool to generate the spatial based data from the field, conduct geographic analysis and visualize the information in meaningful and demonstrative way.

Objectives:

The training has two main objectives: (i) to introduce GIS Science, impart knowledge about its different aspects and utilities, and provide basic practical skills for applying GIS and remote sensing in the field of interest, and (ii) to develop a foundation to facilitate enrollment and successfully complete the UNIGIS MSc course by those undergraduate degree holders who have not yet entered the geospatial field but have interest in it.

Expected outcomes:

On the completion of the training course, the participants are expected to:
  • be able to prepare different types of maps in ArcGIS and ERDAS Imagine;
  • gain specific knowledge in geospatial analyses for natural resource management;
  • be able to handle ArcGIS, ERDAS Imagine and other relevant tools for spatial and non-spatial data integration.
