IB Diploma Students undergo GIS training at Nilgiris: One Earth Foundation

One Earth Foundation recently organized a  Geographical Information System (GIS) training camp in Nilgiris for IB Diploma level students from a leading IB school in Mumbai.  The objectives of this camp were

  • to introduce this multi-faceted tool to the students
  • provide an understanding  of core theory and key applications of this technology
  • Introduction to Arc GIS and arc explorer
  • Field data collection using GPS
  • remote sensing technolgy
  • 2D & 3D images,  etc

The training included several field data collection assignments to familiarize students with applications that would be most useful to them for their various ongoing Geography projects.  The students went on to successfully use the newly acquired skills in a River Study project that followed the GIS camp.

    • Dear Lawrence,

      thank you for your mail. It seems you are looking to do a professional course in GIS. We conduct very short introductory courses only and hence would not be suitable for you. there are many organizations that offer 3-6 months training courses in GIS in India. Please google this and you will be able to find the right institution in India.
      indeed GIS is an upcoming field with numerous applications.
