Post Graduate Degree in Geoinformatics, offered by JSS Academy of Higher Education & Research, is well designated program; Geoinformatics is the synergy of multiple disciplines, namely GIS (Geographical Information System), Remote Sensing, Photogrammetry, GPS (Global Positioning System), Information Technology and Geodesy. Now a day's Geoinformatics has emerged as an effective tool which can be applied in all the fields, such as Environment, Health, Socio-economics, Disaster management, Crime analysis and Resource Management, etc. Geoinformatics deals with spatial and non-spatial data where acquisition, management, analysis and dissemination methods are followed. Application of Geoinformatics is mainly oriented to real world management problems pertaining to natural and man-made environment. Geoinformatics is an increasingly pervasive information processing system and its ubiquitous nature poses new research challenges and provides new opportunities for novel implementation, helps to analyze large datasets, understanding of terrestrial process and human activities which improve socio – economic viability and enhance environmental quality. Geoinformatics is an emerging field catering to Societal, Industry and Scientific needs of the country and has attained a unique position in Global space.
The M.Sc. in Geoinformatics aims to provide conceptual knowledge on GIS, remote sensing and related fields, Information Technology, and hands-on training in GIS, data interpretation, digital image processing, digital photogrammetry, digital cartography and GPS. The course contents have been designed keeping in view the emerging trends in the field of Geoinformatics and the increasing needs of skilled manpower for the viable society.
Following core papers are offered besides some electives:
Graduates / Postgraduates in in Arts, Science, Engineering, Computer Science, Agriculture, Management, and Information Technology or equivalent
Geoinformatics can be applied in every imaginable discipline. Career opportunities lie in both Government and Private sectors related to land resource management, integrated emergency management, water and wastewater management, disaster management, risk assessment and management, transportation, urban planning, environment, hydrology, forestry, agriculture, military, mining, business, health, defense, space research, geology and several related fields.
