NESAC conducted a two-week NNRMS sponsored course on ‘Fundamentals of Remote Sensing and GIS’ using open source software and python programming during 22nd January to 2nd February, 2024., This comprehensive course aimed at equipping participants with profound insights and practical skills in the realm of remote sensing and GIS. The course was meticulously designed into 10 modules, dealing with various aspects of geospatial technology, fostering a holistic understanding among the participants. The modules covered are introduction to Concepts of Remote Sensing, Introduction to Concepts of GIS, Raster and Vector Geospatial Analysis, Image Processing, Advanced Geospatial Analysis, Beyond the Frontiers of Multispectral Remote Sensing, Emission and Scattering based Remote Sensing, Data Dissemination, Field Work and Guided Projects. The project entailed implementation of machine learning libraries using the Python API of Google Earth Engine. In addition to the comprehensive course modules, NESAC facilitated enriching guest lectures by eminent scientists viz., Prof. YS Rao from IIT Bombay and Prasun Kumar Gupta from IIRS Dehradun, providing participants with valuable insights. A distinguishing feature of the NNRMS course was its emphasis on open-source software tools such as QGIS and Python. By leveraging these widely accessible tools, participants gained the ability to work with geospatial datasets effectively, even in scenarios where commercial software might not be available. Overall, the NNRMS course by NESAC served as a catalyst in empowering geospatial enthusiasts with the requisite knowledge and skills to navigate the dynamic landscape of remote sensing and GIS. Dr S.P. Aggarwal, Director, NESAC chaired the Valedictory program of the course on 2nd Feb, 2014 and distributed certificates to the participants. A total of 13 participants attended the course.
