ISRO Offers Free 10-Day Online Course on Remote Sensing

ISRO Offers Free Online Course On Geoprocessing using Python, With Certificate

Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is inviting applications from students and professionals for a free online course on remote sensing techniques for geological studies.

Things to know:

· This course is called Hyperspectral and Microwave Remote Sensing Techniques for Geological Studies.
· The course is being offered through the Indian Institute of Remote Sensing (IIRS) portal.
· The course will be conducted from 7 March to 17 March 2022.
· Upon completion of the course, if the participant fulfils the attendance requirement, they will be awarded a certificate.
· Do note: The participants who attend the course sessions via the IIRS YouTube channel should mark their attendance through the offline session which will be made available after 24 hours.
· At the end of this course participants would be able to process and analyse spaceborne/ airborne Hyperspectral and Microwave remote sensing data for geological applications.
· Participants applying for the course should be a postgraduate or final year postgraduate student of Geosciences.
· Participants must have a basic knowledge of ‘Remote Sensing and GIS’.
· There are limited number of seats. Registration will be done on a first-come, first-serve basis.

·There is no fee being charged to attend this course.
·All the course study materials like lecture slides, video-recorded lectures, open-source software and handouts of demonstrations, etc. will be made available online.
·Video lectures will also be uploaded to an e-class.
