GIS and RS (University of Pune)

The Remote Sensing and Geospatial Information System training centre is located in University of Pune, India's premier institute for graduate and post graduate courses. The courses offered for GIS and RS here are held under the Department of Geography.


RS and GIS training at the University of Pune started on June 2001 as a one year diploma course for students from interdisciplinary backgrounds. Dr. (Ms.) Vrishali Deosthali started the course, aiming to create professionals armed with sound knowledge and practical experience, to serve in the remote sensing and GIS industry. In view of its immense popularity, a two year graduate program for geoinformatics was started in June 2006. The course coordinator as of January 2008 is geography head of department, Dr. V.S. Datye.


Since the beginning of the course, due to lack of infrastructure, classes have been held in seminar halls belonging to various departments of the university. Further, practical training of GIS and RS technologies were conducted in labs that could not hold the growing number of students each year. On July 2008 the University of Pune had sanctioned funds for the construction of independent space for geoinformatics laboratories and classrooms.


The various topics that are covered in its diploma and degree courses are listed below
