ONE YEAR POST-GRADUATE DIPLOMA IN GIS & REMOTE SENSING LAWS

About the Course Programme

Today every area ranging from missile and unmanned aerial vehicle technology to urban administration, e-governance, remote sensing, energy sector, and even advertising and marketing depend on geospatial data. GIS and Remote Sensing are two exciting areas of technology to work on. Geographic information system (GIS) is a special system which is designed to capture, store, manipulate, analyze, manage, and present all types of geographical data on earth. GIS technology is an integrated database which has all the information like population characteristics, economic development opportunities, and vegetation types, maps etc. GIS allows to link the databases and maps and create dynamic displays. It also provides tools to visualize, query, and overlay the databases which are technically not possible through spreadsheets.

While GIS helps in explaining and predicting the events on earth, remote sensing is an art and science of measuring the earth with the help of sensors. Remote sensors generally collect the data by detecting the energy that is reflected back from Earth. These sensors are arranged on airplanes and satellites. Remote sensors collect the data in the form of images and manipulate them for analyzing and visualizing the data. GIS and Remote sensors are interrelated as these remote sensors are integrated within GIS systems to visualize and interpret the collected data.

To compete in the ever-growing demand for subject-specific expert in the Industry, and with a view to enable careers in the GIS and Remote Sensing Laws, NALSAR University of Law through its Centre for Aerospace and Defence Laws (CADL), had initiated to offer Course in this area. The program enables candidates of researching, choosing and assessing map source information for use in the arrangement or amendment of maps and diagrams to different scales. Candidates can have the employments identifying with examining information gave by remote sensing techniques.

The curriculum of the programme is a tailor-made to meet the professional needs of the remote sensing and geoinformatics industry. The course is a one-year programme consisting of 6 papers stretched into two semesters. The papers include General Principles of Law, Remote Sensing Technology and Law, GIS Technology and Law, Coastal Mapping and Coastal Zone Management, Satellite Technology, Remote Sensing, GIS and IPR Issues, and IT and Cyber Laws.

Remote sensing and GIS is increasingly used by both Public and private companies that sell imagery and data to Google, Bing, scientists, academic and research libraries, and others.
