ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT

About the Centre The Centre for Geoinformatics and Planetary Studies was established in 2010, with an objective of conducting advanced research and promote higher education in the field of Remote Sensing, GIS and Planetary Studies. The centre has basic infrastructure and computational facilities for Remote Sensing, Digital Image processing and GIS work. The research activities in the centre are in the fields of planetary remote sensing, hyperspectral remote sensing and mineral exploration, disaster mapping and mitigation, sustainable ground water development and climate change in water resource. The centre has received Rs.1.27 crore worth of major research projects from various funding agencies. The centre has produced and supplied Lunar soil simulant to ISRO for creation of terrain testing facilities for Chandrayan Missions.

Vision

The Centre for Geoinformatics and Planetary Studies was established in attainment of national and international recognition through quality teaching, innovative research, consultancy, manpower training and service to the society.



Mission
