The Indian Institute of Remote Sensing Applications (IIRS) and Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) are together organizing an Online Course on Geospatial Modelling for Watershed Management from August 2 to 6, 2021.
This course will provide an overview of the principles of watershed management, use of geospatial technologies for watershed management including the use of digital elevation models (DEMs) for terrain analysis of watershed, spatial modeling of soil erosion, and soil and water conservation planning. The course is therefore of special interest for the professionals, researchers, and students interested in learning utility of these modern technologies in the context of Watershed Management.
Indian Institute of Remote Sensing (IIRS) under Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), Department of Space, Govt. of India is a premier Training and Educational Institute set up for developing trained professionals in the field of Remote Sensing, Geoinformatics and GNSS Technology for Natural Resources, Environmental, and Disaster Management.
- Overview of RS and GIS applications in watershed management
- Digital Terrain analysis for watershed characterization
- Geospatial modelling for soil erosion assessment in watershed
- Land Use Planning & Soil and water conservation Measures
- Monitoring of watershed development programs using RS and GIS
The IIRS outreach program, which was started in 2007 with 12 universities/ institutions has now grown substantially to 2800. The beneficiaries of the program may include:
- Soil and Water Conservation Officers
- State Land Resources/ Departments/ Training Academies
- State Watershed Directorates
- Central/ State/ Private Universities & Academic Institutions
- Central & State Government Departments
- Research Institutes/ Research scholars
- Geospatial Industries
