Institute of Geoinformatics and Remote Sensing (IGRS) is one of the pioneer institute in GIS & RS in Eastern and Northeastern India.
The purpose of this Institute is to prepare a workforce armed with latest geospatial knowledge to meet the ever increasing demand of geospatial industry.
IGRS proudly announced in 2001 the commencement of first Post Graduate Program in GIS, Remote Sensing and GPS application areas. The PG Program and other short term programme will not only improve the knowledgebase but also educate the trainee with knowledge to face interview boards of renowned MNC’s and other GIS companies. IGRS focuses on the educational needs of students in Geoinformatics and related information technologies.
Geographic information systems (GIS) play a major role in managing resources and facilitating effective management decisions. GIS data capture systems can be used to map and track natural resources, maintain and update complex equipment inventories or urban assets, and many other tasks. The use of GIS has gone beyond the traditional boundary of defense infrastructure, utility services and land record management. It is now being increasingly recognized worldwide as an important tool for business intelligence and personal utility.
The Geographic Information Technology curriculum at IGRS provides a broad background in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technologies with practical applications in municipal, industrial, natural resources, management, and other fields. The GIS specialists utilize powerful computer hardware and software to collect, store, retrieve, process and present geographic information.
Geographic information technologies have an unmatched effect on the entire spectrum of knowledge by targeting the spatial information about “what is where” on Earth's surface and making decisions easy by representing the information in a digital format which can be edited, sampled and updated in a user friendly environment.
IGRS aims at imparting state-of-the-art education and training in GIS to fulfill the continued requirements of professionals in the field of GIS. Institute of Geoinformatics & Remote Sensing develops technical capabilities through long-term and short term training programmes, workshops, orientation programmes and customized thematic programmes in GIS.
Anything new about stirling engines in Cal?
Looking for an update. Everything I find from google news is almost a year old. This is from the stirling engine deal with Southern Edison to build a 500MW plant outside of LA.
What geographical areas are best suited for a solar dish farm?
The southwest region of the United States is ideally suited for this. In fact, a solar farm 100 miles by 100 miles could satisfy 100% of the Americaâs annual electrical needs. Solar technology primarily addresses the peak power demands facing utility companies in the Southwest U.S. and other solar-rich areas.
The cost of living and job markets are better than the national average, but the best job strategy is not to go for averages, but look at your specific skills and experiences, figure out which careers that relates to, and then go to that geographical area:
technology - Silicon Valley
finance - New York
There are other factors to consider. How important are mountains? the ocean? good weather? I have met many midwesterners in Acapulco during the winter, and none ever told me
"I got to get back to Omaha. I just miss those snow covered plains."
4,000 Year Old Greenlander
WASHINGTON (Reuters) â Scientists have sequenced the DNA from four frozen hairs of a Greenlander who died 4,000 years ago in a study they say takes genetic technology into several new realms.
Surprisingly, the long-dead man appears to have originated in Siberia and is unrelated to modern Greenlanders, Morten Rasmussen of the University of Copenhagen and colleagues found.
"This provides evidence for a migration from Siberia into the New World some 5,500 years ago, independent of that giving rise to the modern Native Americans and Inuit," the researchers wrote in Thursday's issue of the journal Nature
