About the Course


Geoinformatics is the blend of various technologies, namely, GIS, remote sensing, photogrammetry, cartography, GPS and geodesy. It is fundamental to all the disciplines, which use data identified by their locations. Geoinformatics deals with spatial and non-spatial data, their methods of acquisition, management, analysis, display, and dissemination. Applications of geoinformatics are mainly oriented to solve real world problems pertaining to natural and man-made environments. The one year Post Graduate Diploma in Geoinformatics aims to provide conceptual knowledge on GIS, remote sensing and related fields, and hands-on training in GIS, remote sensing data interpretation, digital image processing, digital photogrammetry, digital cartography, webGIS, GPS,2D and 3D drafting. The course contents have been designed after an exhaustive research keeping in view the emerging trends in the field of Geoinformatics as well as the current industry



Graduation (Completed or Persuing) or Higher Degree from any discipline (Science, Geography, Geology, Environment, Disaster Management, Engineering, Computer science, Planning and Architecture) with Basic computer knowledge.



The Duration of Course is 12 Months 

(9 months Training and 3 Months internship)
