CIRDAP has organized a Basic Training on GIS for student and professionals.

The course was uniquely designed by technical experts to ensure the meaningful skill development for the participants so that they can make the best use of the latest Geospatial Information System technologies in their professional fields.

Geospatial technology broadly includes mapping and surveying techniques, remote sensing, photogrammetry, cartography, Global Positioning Systems (GPS) and Geographical Information Systems (GIS). With its unique ability for acquisition, integration, and analysis of geographically-referenced spatial information, this technology has in recent times been recognized as an effective tool for planning, management, and decision making locally and globally.

This introductory Eight days training course designed to give thorough understanding of Remote Sensing, Image Interpretation, Digital Image processing, GIS, and various applications in their relevant field.

The training included theoretical introduction of Geospatial, practical hands-on Data Collection using MDC, GPS, DGPS, Total Station, and computer work, emphasizing QGIS and Arc Map specific applications.

A total of thirteen participants from different Backgrounds shortlisted and attended the entire training. The eight-day training was intense and thorough. The team of facilitators engaged to deliver the training implemented the program with dedication and passion. The participants also expressed confidence that they had built their capacity and acquired skills that give them a competitive advantage in the job market.
