What is this workshop about?

Geographic Information System (GIS) technology has predominantly changed how our world is analyzed and modeled. Be it small businesses, multinational companies, agriculture-based companies, educational institutions, or maps guiding a lost individual- GIS finds application in many areas. The rapid growth rate of data poses the huge challenge to its interpretation. GIS provides an easy and more efficient way to interpret geospatial data – to create a topographic map with elevation, angles and other features. The Applications of GIS workshop exposes the participants to the concepts and applications of GIS in use for multiple disciplines. Participants will learn to create, edit, visualize, and analyze geospatial information and apply this learning to work on a vast range of projects where GIS technology is used.
