Class Size : 40

The short-term workshop (STW) entitled “Applications of Geospatial Technology for Natural Resources Management” aims to create awareness and interest in how geospatial techniques would be utilized by one for sustainable management of natural resources among the students, research scholars, faculties, and industry personnel. As the program is conducted in a workshop mode with hands-on sessions, the number of participants in the STW is limited to 40 on a first-come, first-serve basis.

The participants will get the recorded sessions of the workshop on our Albedo Foundation android app only for one month’s validity.

The Objectives of STW

  1. To make participants aware of modern GIS and RS technology
  2. To gather the researchers from various areas to understand the applications of RS and GIS for natural resources mapping and management
  3. To give hands-on training on open source geospatial data and tools available
