National Seminar On Geospatial Technology Development In Natural Resource And Disaster Management 2012
Geospatial technology develops new users for information technology in order to solve specific problems in diverse areas. Geoinformatics is a science which develops and uses information technology to address the problems of geosciences and related branches of engineering. Geoinformatics is possible through a range of models in such fields as mathematics, computional geometry, graph theory, and statistics.
Geoinformatics technologies include Geospatial Information System (GIS), Global Positioning System (GPS), and Remote Sensing. Today, numerous applications are benefiting from geoinformatics techniques and tools and with advances in geoinformatics and other technologies, such as mobile computing and wireless networks, the emergence of many new applications are expected. For Example: geoinformatics applications are in-car navigation systems, automatic vehicle location systems, location based service, transportation planning and engineering, environmental modeling and analysis, telecommunications, agriculture, farming, and public health.
Therefore, this seminar can bring together various professional and academic bodies to come to a common platform and exchange the viewpoints, which can develop new uses for information technology to address the problems in Natural resource and Disaster Management.
