PRE-CONFERENCE WORKSHOP THE COLLEGE OF EARTH & ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCES UNIVERSITY OF THE PUNJAB, LAHORE
FUNDAMENTALS OF GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION SYSTEM & REMOTE SENSING
This one-day workshop providing the basic knowledge on Geographical Information System and Remote Sensing (GIS & RS) which helps out to visualize real-world features, create information that can be used in policy making, problem solving and conceptualize the underline use of GIS & RS with hands-on experience with geospatial techniques, satellite imagery and digital maps. Moreover, this course disseminates GIS & RS concepts and spatial tools used to explore data, analyze maps, discover patterns and communicate information in effective way. Furthermore, this workshop will provide the participants with not only GIS & RS expertise itself but also how to implement them in their job, business, study and researches.
At the end of the training the participants would be able to understand, the principles and applications of GIS and Remote Sensing in different fields of human endeavors, exposed to GIS data types and accurate data collection techniques, map composition, acquire in-depth understanding of information extraction from satellite imagery and other data sources. Moreover, the attendees should be with the consociate of GIS & RS data management and analysis, data displaying and quality outputs generation, and the application of GIS & RS in solving problems and spatial decision making.
