BENGALURU, 11 July 2021: ISRO is offering two free online courses on Geospatial Modelling and Geospatial Technology. Students and professionals can apply for the same and get certificates upon completion.

The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) is offering two free online courses on Geospatial Modelling and Geospatial Technology through its Indian Institute of Remote Sensing (IIRS) centre. Students and professionals can apply for the same and get certificates upon completion.

The free online certificate courses are titled Geospatial Modelling for Watershed Management and Geospatial Technology for Hydrological Modelling.

The two online courses are for both students and professionals who are interested in learning about the fields of soil and water conservation.

Geospatial Modelling for Watershed Management

Geospatial technologies including remote sensing, GIS and GPS have emerged as a powerful tool in recent years for assessment and monitoring of watershed management.

Course dates: August 2 to 6, 2021

What will students learn?

Overview of RS and GIS applications in watershed management

Digital Terrain Analysis for watershed characterization

Geospatial modelling for soil erosion assessment in the watershed

Land use planning and soil and water conservation measures

Monitoring of watershed development programs using RS and GIS

Eligibility

Graduate in Science/ Agriculture Science/Agricultural or Civil Engineering

Understanding of Basic concepts of Remote Sensing and GIS

Note: There is a limited number of seats and registration will be done on a first-come-first-serve basis.

How to register

Course updates and other details will be available on URL- http://www.iirs.gov.in/Edusat-News/.

All the participants have to register online through the registration page available on the above web page.

How to attend classes

Course study materials like lecture slides, video-recorded lectures, open-source software and handouts of demonstrations, etc. will be made available through eclass. Video lectures will also be uploaded on e-class (https://www.eclass.iirs.gov.in/login).

Individuals can attend the course live via any web browser through the eclass portal of IIRS Dehradun i.e. https://eclass.iirs.gov.in

The participants can also attend the live workshop via the YouTube channel of IIRS i.e https://www.youtube.com/user/edusat2004

The content of the workshop will be available offline after 24 hours in the eclass portal.

How to get a certificate

Participants need to attend 70% of sessions of the course live via the e-class portal.

Participants who attend the course sessions via the IIRS YouTube channel should mark their attendance via offline sessions available after 24 hrs.

Geospatial Technology for Hydrological Modelling

Hydrological modelling is an effective and essential tool for assessment, prediction and management of water resources, hydrological parameters and water movement/demand/use scenarios.

Course dates: July 19 to 30, 2021

What will students learn?

Geospatial technology applications for Water Resources: An Overview

Type of hydrological models and spatial, non-spatial data inputs for hydrological modelling

Digital elevation model and its derivatives for hydrological modelling

Rainfall-Runoff Modelling

Snow/glacier melt-runoff modelling

Soil erosion and sediment yield modelling

Flood peak estimation using hydrological modelling

River flow modelling using 1D hydrodynamic

Impact climate change on hydrological regime

Eligibility

Graduate degree in Science/Technology
