ISRO Started Five day Online Course For Students Of Class 10th 12th, Register By July 20, The Classed Will Be Held From 26 To 30 July
Online Summer School on “Usefulness of Remote Sensing & GIS for Environmental Studies”
Introduction Environment is the life supporting system. All necessities of day to day life are available from our environment. But the over-exploitation of natural resources and environmental pollution are corroding the vital life support systems. Remote Sensing data & Geographic Information System (GIS) along with some models can be used to monitor and mapping of natural resources and environmental pollution in addition to natural disasters like cyclone, tsunami, avalanche, floods, drought, hailstorm, wildfire etc. Indian Institute of Remote Sensing (IIRS), Dehradun, a constituent unit under Indian Space Research organization (ISRO) is engaged in imparting training and education in the field of Remote Sensing and GIS Sciences since 1966 to meet the requirements of various stake-holders, ranging from fresh graduates to policy makers including academia, industry, different government departments and NGOs. This course for school students is of one week duration and the focus of the course is on principles of Remote Sensing & GIS and its applications for environmental studies.
Aim of the Course
The course is intended to engage secondary and higher secondary students to create awareness about Remote Sensing Technology & its use for the study of mother planet Earth and its environment through informative lectures and demonstration. Remote sensing and GIS technology are potential tools to understand the vast environment. Exposing the knowledge of satellite data utilization via GIS and image processing software in environmental science has a great scope as it would help the students to understand the importance of remote sensing and then in career decision making.
