Diploma in Geoinformatics & Remote Sensing (DGIRS)

Over the past several decades’ geospatial technologies acquiring, managing, interpreting, integrating, displaying, analyzing, data in the geographic, temporal, and spatial contexts, have gained increasing importance in both the public and private sectors. They include geographic information systems (GIS), remote sensing (RS), surveying techniques, WebGIS /MobileGIS and global positioning systems (GPS). These technologies have been used to uplift government, public and private sectors. This is an applied Basic Geoinformatics and Remote sensing (science, systems, and technologies) course where you will perform various assigned exercises and readings so that you become familiar with the power and possibilities of spatial analysis.
