Rationale

Geographic Information Systems(GIS) is a computer based information system used to digitally represent and analyse the geographic features present on the Earth' surface. "Every object present on the Earth can be geo-referenced” is the fundamental key of associating any database to GIS. Here, term 'database' is a collection of information (spatial and non-spatial information/data) about things and their relationship to each other and refers to the location of a layer or coverage in space defined by the co-ordinate referencing system. It helps to carry out the overlay, integration, buffer and union analysis in GIS. This course mainly designed for research students to carry out their research out come by using GIS techniques.
