Department of Remote Sensing & GIS

Remote Sensing and GIS is a relatively young scientific discipline and is an area of emerging technology which has witnessed phenomenal growth over last three decades. In the recent past, there has been tremendous development in the field of Remote Sensing data collection, analysis and utilization. The science of Remote Sensing is no more an art of Map making from satellite image. It is fee form of information technology where raw digital data is converted to information which in turn aid to the knowledge base for sound decision making. Image processing facilities which were earlier restricted to selected major research establishments have now become widely available with the advent of microcomputer and low cost image processing equipments. The digital data handling led to the development of GIS (Geographical Information System) followed by another innovation ofGPS (Global Positing System).

Remote Sensing coupled with GIS and GPS techniques has dramatically enhanced human capability for resources exploration, mapping and monitoring on local and global scale. The course is not only going to provide job opportunity for the young students but shall also open an avenue of effective and viable interaction with national establishments related to various aspects of remote sensing. The course aims at developing multidimensional programmes of teaching and research in the field of Remote Sensing and GIS as this is the first University in north India to impart such degree course.
