Geography, the discipline, is no more the static science that maps rivers, capitals, nations and mountains. With technologies as accessible as Google Earth, the school texts don't mean the same thing anymore. Remote Sensing, GIS, GPS and Geoinformatics allow Geography to become a multidisciplinary stream that amalgamates a number of areas such as social-science, science and technology to offer a dynamic and adjustable model of the world around us.
The National Seminar On Geo-Informatics And Spatial Applications will exclusively discuss the various technologies that have brought about this effect. Industry specialists, from organisations such as IIC Technologies, Erdas Imagine, Org GIS, NRSA, Survey Of India will be present, along with academicians from Bombay University, Pune University, NIRD etc.
The seminar will be inaugurated by the Director of NRSA Mr. K Radhakrishna. For further details, please contact S Simhadri at 2709-7192, 2768-2203, 94400-51409.
