GIS for Agriculture Management Course Overview

Geospatial Technologies has massive application in effective, precise agriculture and better management of agriculture and water resources. This includes agro-ecological zone mapping, soil mapping and capability assessment, using NDVI analysis for crop health analysis, irrigation requirement analysis, land information system, yield estimation, disease /pest management and many more. In India for assessing localised calamity risk covered under PMFBY (Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana) scheme in the season 2020 these technologies are used. Skills of GIS and Remote Sensing, GPS, Drones, LiDAR along with agriculture education can secure great job opportunities in Indian market.

In this course is designed to fulfil above demand. Learn concepts including spatial data structures, data sources and transfer methods, projections and coordinate systems, geo-referencing, fundamental of spatial analysis, with the hands on exercise in GIS Tools. Course exercise specially emphasis on agriculture case studies and related tasks. Concepts presented in lecture will be put into practice through hands-on laboratory exercises utilizing the GIS software product.
