About the course
The use of Geographic Information System (GIS) and Remote Sensing (RS) is ubiquitous in our lives, where we use it for making better decisions. As cities witness unrelenting urbanisation and grow with each passing decade, the complexity of urban issues increases, particularly related to the urban water cycle and other dimensions of sustainable development.
In order to address these challenges, we need cost-effective solutions, rapid analysis and inter-linking of multi-disciplinary data and information. These spatial analysis tools allow such multi-disciplinary approaches to be applied, using a range of data sources and in response to such complex problems.
With increased focus on water conservation and management in cities, practitioners need to address water issues in a comprehensive manner, and provide rapid, sustainable solutions. GIS and RS techniques will allow managers and regulators to move efficiently from traditional planning and design techniques to smart, cost effective and sustainable solutions.
Course Aim and Objectives
The aim of the course is to sensitize various stakeholders/practitioners to the basic tools and techniques for mapping-analysis for citywide water and sanitation management.
The course objectives are:
The training programme is divided into four modules, focussing on the use of GIS in performing various spatial analysis, use of Remote Sensing data, and exposure to existing models for water-sensitive planning and green infrastructure:
The virtual sessions will be held on 27 Oct., 29 Oct., 3 Nov., and 6 Nov. from 11AM to 1PM.
As this is a basic course, GIS proficiency is not a requirement. However, participants must have basic proficiency is using of computers, and access to a computer system with minimum requirements for downloading, installing and running Q-GIS package. The target groups include:
Minimum computer/laptop configuration
The course will be conducted on latest version of Q-GIS. Kindly check if your computer/laptop meets the following minimum configuration:
