M.Sc in Geoinformatics is a two-year postgraduate course that focuses on creating specialists in the field of Geospatial Technology. The curriculum is designed to provide theoretical knowledge along with hands-on training so that the students will be able to apply the concepts to solve practical problems. The students will also work with professional mentors to gain the experience required to excel in their careers.
Geoinformatics is the technology for decision support for management of resources and facilities. Due to the highly spatial nature of data handled by a GI system, it is able to provide outputs to facilitate visualization of choices made thus enabling quick and accurate decision making. The M.Sc. Geoinformatics is an extended branch of information technology and involves the use of remote sensing, digital image processing, GPS technology, programming, etc. to build a geospatial database that can be queried to get the relevant answers. Geoinformatics combines geospatial analysis and modeling, development of geospatial databases, information systems design. Geoinformatics uses geocomputation and geovisualization for analyzing geoinformation. Many students benefit by opting for M.Sc. in geoinformatics, including urban planning, land use management, in-car navigation systems, environmental modeling and analysis, military, transport network, planning and management, agriculture, meteorology and climate change, oceanography, business location planning, telecommunications, crime simulation, aviation and maritime transport.
The importance of the spatial dimension in assessing, monitoring and modeling various issues and problems related to sustainable management of natural resources is recognized all over the world. Geoinformatics becomes very important technology to decision-makers across a wide range of disciplines, industries, commercial sector, environmental agencies, local and national government, research, and academia, national survey and mapping organizations, International organizations, emergency services, public health and epidemiology, crime mapping, transportation and infrastructure, information technology industries, tourist industry, utility companies, market analysis and e-commerce, mineral exploration, etc.
Our Institute is a premier in the Geoinformatics colleges in India that facilitates the M.Sc. Geoinformatics course.
Many government and non-government agencies have started to use spatial data for managing their day to day activities.
