About Event:

Geospatial technology is a term used to describe the modern tools to the mapping and analysis of the Earth and human environment. It has ability to assemble a wide range of geospatial data into a layered set of maps, which allows complex themes to be analyzed effectively, economically & efficiently. Today these technologies have evolved into a network of national security, scientific, and commercially operated satellites complemented by powerful desktop/Web GIS. Recent research in these areas has thrown light over a number of innovative and cost effective ways to inform decision makers on topics such as mineral exploration, information System, disaster management, biodiversity conservation, forest fire suppression, Wild life habitat analysis, agricultural monitoring,  Watershed management etc. We sincerely hope that this conference will provoide such a platform and definitely help in presenting technological advancements in the field of application of geospatial technologies towards rural development.
