About FDP

A geographic information system (GIS) is a computer-based tool for mapping and analyzing feature events on earth. GIS technology integrates common database operations, such as query and statistical analysis, with maps. GIS manages location-based information and provides tools for display and analysis of various statistics, including population characteristics, economic development opportunities, and vegetation types. GIS allows you to link databases and maps to create dynamic displays. Additionally, it provides tools to visualize, query, and overlay those databases in ways not possible with traditional spreadsheets. These abilities distinguish GIS from other information systems, and make it valuable to a wide range of public and private enterprises for explaining events, predicting outcomes, and planning strategies. .

Remote sensing is the art and science of making measurements of the earth using sensors on airplanes or satellites. These sensors collect data in the form of images and provide specialized capabilities for manipulating, analyzing, and visualizing those images. Remote sensed imagery is integrated within a GIS.

Objectives

  • To understand the principles, applications, trends, and pertinent issues of geographical information systems and sciences, including remote sensing (RS), Photogrammetry, cartography, and global positioning systems (GPS).
  • To provide learning and teaching experiences with real world problems.
  • To develop technical skills and competence in data and information acquisition, extraction, management and analysis; spatial and statistical modelling; mapping and visualization.
  • To increase awareness of GIS and modelling tools for improving competition and business potential.
  • To describe how geographical information is used, managed, and marketed globally.
  • To gain an understanding of how to manipulate and apply vector and raster spatial data, particularly with regard to local/state/national issues, emphasizing lands in and near it.
  • To develop applications of environmental remote sensing and GIS which can directly enhance service delivery on land use management, ground water management/prospects, agriculture, forestry, food and water security, disaster management, etc.
