GeoInformatics in India
Geoinformatics Department (GID) is one of the latest technological departments, set-up in 1996 with the collaboration of ITC, The Netherlands, to offer core technological courses in the field of Geo-information Science. The department has most modern facility for creation, processing and modelling of digital geospatial data, which caters to the multifarious needs of students, users, researchers and various projects of the Institute. Technology development in the areas of GIS, database management, spatial analysis and modelling, development of decision support/expert systems is its main focus. The M.Sc. course in Geo-information Science and Earth Observation (specialisation in Geoinformatics) is one of its major programmes offered since 2002 as a part of Joint Education Programme of IIRS and ITC, The Netherlands Geoinformatics specialisation is also offered as a part of M.Tech. Course (affiliated to Andhra University) and Postgraduate Diploma course (as a joint-logo programme of IIRS and ITC). The department also organises specialised training programmes for user departments and undertakes research and consultancy projects in the areas of its specialisation.
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

and plz list out all the leading universities which are offering this course in south india...
Hello friend, you are approching the right sector. One of my friend is also joined this program from UPES, Dehradun. He told me, he is already getting offers from multinational organisations with decent package. If you are also interested in this program, look for UPES as it is famous for its programs in pan Asia region. Don't forget to look for other options too, and then take a decision. Best of luck!!
