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 Redefining Geography has emminent thinkers, both academicians and industry professionals, coming from all over India - Delhi, Kolkatta, Mumbai, Vishakaatnam, Chennai and Bangalore. There will be more than 100 people present to discuss how best to integrate the cutting edge technologies into our study of Geography.
The seminar is being hosted by the Department Of Geography, Osmania University. For further details, please contact S Simhadri at 2709-7192, 2768-2203, 94400-51409.
