Ten participants were enrolled in the online workshop. 

WEBINAR - LiDAR Remote Sensing in Forestry - SEPT 2020

Albedo Foundation organized a live webinar on "LiDAR Remote Sensing in Forestry." The key speaker for this webinar was Dr. Subrata Nandy, Scientist/Engineer-SE, Forest and Ecology Department, IIRS, ISRO. Visualizing landscape or any tree canopy in 3D? has always been a curiosity, and we got the answers for this mystery in the webinar when Dr. Nandy told us about the LASER scanners and GIS tools to handle the point cloud data. His talk explores canopy measurement techniques, field surveys, and terrestrial LASER scanners (TLS) case studies. In his address, he also gave applications of GIS and RS in the forest fire mappings.

WEBINAR - Geospatial Techniques for Drought Characterization and Impact Assessment - SEPT 2020

Albedo Foundation organized a live webinar on "Geospatial Techniques for Drought Characterization and Impact Assessment."

We Albedo Foundation were very excited to celebrate GIS DAY 2019 with 8th std school children of tribal school at Waghera Nashik. A total of 55 students were participants in the event. In this event, we demonstrated what GIS, map-making, and types of maps are. Students were happy to participate in the Geotagging maps and geography quiz. Students tried to find out the geography quiz answers on google earth, and they were delighted and curious to learn more about geography and the earth systems. Teachers were very supportive of this event, and they agreed to use GIS as an interactive learning tool for the geography classes.


Albedo Foundation arranged the one-day GRAM ++ GIS workshop in association with NDMVPS's KBT COE at Nashik. More than 75 trainees attended the seminar, comprised of the faculty from Civil Engg., Geography, Architecture and Diploma, UG, PG students from the City and the nearby districts. The resource person was Mr. Deepak Choksi, who is currently working as a Project Manager at IIT Bombay and the critical person in developing GRAM ++ GIS. He elucidated the terms of GIS and GIS applications in civil engineering and the other science allied fields. He also demonstrated a few modules of GRAM ++ GIS software indubitably. We hope this workshop will navigate the trainees to implement GIS skills in their respective professions and the research works. Feedback from the trainees is affirmative, so we are actuality to organize these kinds of workshops may more. Every trainee was awarded a participation certificate at the ending ceremony.
