About IIRS :
Indian Institute of Remote Sensing (IIRS) a unit of Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is a premier institute with a primary aim to build capacity in Remote Sensing and Geoinformatics technologies and their applications through training & education, research and outreach programmes.
About the course :
The duration of the course will be for 1 full day consisting of lectures and demonstration exercise covering of broad overview on
current global and Indian sensors, data-analytics in Agriculture including soil resources.
Data analytics in Agriculture particularly has drawn considerable attention for agriculture application in fast few decades. Remote sensing, as one of the sources for big data, is generating earth-observation data and analysis results daily from the platforms of satellites, manned/unmanned aircrafts, and ground-based structures. Agricultural remote sensing is one of the backbone technologies for precision agriculture, which considers within-field variability for site-specific management instead of uniform management as in traditional agriculture.
The topics will cover Geospatial data analytics in Agriculture including machine learning tools., soil mapping and modelling erosion, analytics of microwave Remote sensing and geospatial water Analytics.
Target participants :
This course is primarily meant to train working professional from govt. organizations, non-govt. organizations, Universities and Educational Institutions, entrepreneurs, researchers, in the area of remote sensing.
There is no registration fee.There are limited number of seats. Registration will be done on first come first serve basis.
Award of certificates:
All participants who attend the programme through e-class portal will get an e-certificate for participation.
