Geo informatics Scope in India & Course Details


what is geoinformatics

Geo informatics is a well growing industry, across the world most of the countries start specialized in this area. As for india concern shortage of skilled human resource in the field of remote sensing and Geographic Information System (GIS) so students can take this hotspot career.

In india Geo informatics usage is under primary level. High level scope in Geoinformatics field with accelerated growth and development prospects. Remote Sensing in India has developed in the last twenty-five years. It is largely useful in the fields of agriculture, forestry, infrastructure development, disaster management, irrigation, defense and traffic management.

Geo-informatics is a science which develops and uses information science infrastructure to address the problems of geosciences and related branches. Geo-informatics technologies includes Geographic Information Systems(GIS), Remote Sensing, Global Positioning Systems(GPS) and Spatial decision support systems.

Geoinformatics combines geospatial analysis and modeling, development of geospatial database and information systems design. It is the technique of creating multiple layers of large amount of data, which in turn creates a virtual three-dimensional system, making decision-making easier.
