Environmental Analysis and Modelling Using GIS


The main objective of this training course is to provide theoretical and practical knowledge about the use of geographical information system (GIS) for the analysis of different water and environmental problems.

Main Achievements.
After course completion, one should able to
1. To understand the fundamentals of GIS technologies
2. Gain a knowledge to carry out sequential data processing steps for solving water and environmental related problems.
3. To develop hand-on skills using software tools.
4. Gain knowledge about GIS model based technique for management water resources.

Course Highlight
