Courses

Our vision at Indian Geoinformatics Centre is to equip our user communities, to manage information scientifically using GIS, Remote Sensing, Satellite Image Processing, and GPS technologies to make “Informed” decisions. To achieve this goal, we offer regular and part time training programs and consulting services to anyone who wishes to apply GIS & Satellite Image Processing in their domain of activity.

Each course will approximately have 30% of time for theory and 70% time for practice. Class strength from 5 to 10.
