Diploma in Geoinformatics (DGi) - Geoinformatics or Geomatics is the synergy of multiple disciplines, namely, GIS, remote sensing, photogrammetry, cartography, GPS and geodesy. It is fundamental to all the disciplines, which use data identified by their locations. Geomatics deals with spatial and non-spatial data, their methods of acquisition, management, analysis, display, and dissemination. Applications of geomatics are mainly oriented to real world management problems pertaining to natural and man-made environments.The Post Graduate Diploma in Geoinformatics (PG - DGi) aims to provide conceptual knowledge on GIS, remote sensing and related fields, and hands-on training in GIS, remote sensing data interpretation, digital image processing, digital photogrammetry, digital cartography and GPS. There are also three electives i.e Geoinformatics Business & Project Management, GIS Development and RDBMS.The Diploma in Geoinformatics is a 6 months full time course consisting of 9 modules (8 compulsory and one elective) and a dissertation project, with evaluation at the end of each module. The course curriculum demands full time attendance and commitment from the students. Each daily session comprises 3 hours of classroom lecture followed by at least 3 hours of lab work. Projects of 2 months duration are assigned to the students during the course.
