Certificate Course in GIS & Remote Sensing For Agricultural Resource Management

ArcGIS/Q-GIS. MicroStation and LPS2011 are GIS is the most popular software available to perform any GIS type work. This course is geared toward understanding the fundamental concepts of:

Geographic Information Science, Remote Sensing, and Cartography.

Geoprocessing, Network Analysis, Spatial Analysis, Land Use, and Land

Cover, HotSpot Analysis, Interpolation, Web Services (WMS and WFS)

Spatial Query, Spatial Database Concepts with PostGIS(QGIS).

Analyze spatial data (Extract, Overlay, and Proximity), 3D Analysis.

Crop masking, developing FCC, Crop Identification, and Crop Classification.

The area under each crop, area stratification, and calculation of various vegetation indices.

Demonstration session with few RS IMAGES.

Different data available  specific  to agriculture (NDVI, LAI imaginaries  available in USGS by different sensors)

The candidate(s) will be made familiar with the Analysis concepts of GIS, remote sensing, and definitions such as spatial imagery, digital image, and digital image processing/analysis, etc. amongst others. Different variety of spatial data will be introduced and worked upon. Introduction to spatial analysis will provide an understanding of opting appropriate analysis tools for specific projects.
