Master of Science (M.Sc.) Remote Sensing& GIS


Objective
:
 The
two years Distance Learning Master of Science (M.Sc.) in Remote Sensing
and GIS conducted by The Global Open University, Nagaland has been
designed for meeting the demand of the growing needs of experts in the
fields of geographical information system, remote sensing, physical
geography, spatial database design and management, map digitization,
cartography, map analysis, land used planning, resource management etc.
Those completing this Degree are preferred for jobs to GIS and remote
sensing in Central & State Government Organizations.

Career in
Remote Sensing & GIS

Remote
Sensing is the acquisition of information about an object or phenomenon
without making physical contact with the object. In modern uses, the term
generally refers to the use of aerial sensor technologies to detect and
classify objects on earth by means of propagated signals making it
possible to collect data on dangerous or inaccessible areas. Latest
applications of remote sensing like monitoring deforestation, glacial
features in Arctic and Antarctic regions and depth sounding of coastal
and ocean depth have made this science most popular.
