PHOTOGEOLOGY & REMOTE SENSING

By Prof. Rajendra Kumar Rawat   |   Dr. Harisingh Gour Vishwavidyalaya, Sagar, MP (A central university)
Learners enrolled: 879
The conventional field expeditions will always remain the best methods of data collection. However, modern geospatial tools like photo geology &remote sensing can make such investigations rapid and more comprehensive. In the last century, photo geology &remote sensing have been extensively used for various purposes. Now a days, these disciplines along with GIS (Geographic information system) are successfully being utilized for better mapping, monitoring and decision-making tasks. Now, a systematic approach is needed to understand the principles behind phtogeology&remote sensing (space) technologyintegrated with GIS & Indian/foreign navigation systems. Finally, this space technology will be utilized efficiently for evaluation of our precious earth resources and significant applications of this technologies. 
This course will provide thesignificant information about the historical background, basic concepts, principles, advantages and applications of photogeology& remote sensing integrated with GIS and Indian/foreign navigation system.

This course is very beneficial for those who are interested to develop their career and future in geoinformatics (i.e an amalgamated science of Remote sensing, photo geology, Geographic information system and national/international navigation system). In fact, the course is also designed to them, who are doing their undergraduate degree as per Choice Based Credit System (Skill Enhancement Course SEC 311 Photogeology & Remote sensing - 2 Credit). Besides, it will also be beneficial to those students who are participating in State PSCs, UPSC and other competitive exams.
