|Objective of the Workshop:
Population and environment are highly inter-related. There are number of issues which need special attention by population scientists: like impact of population parameters on environmental components, projecting the impact, sustainable development adaptation and technological innovations, price mechanism, global warming and contribution of India, environmental changes and its estimates, impact of environmental changes on economy and development etc. To achieve sustainable development, the impact on environment and biodiversity due to human activities needs to be carefully assessed at regional and landscape level. During past decades there was huge problem in analyzing Geographical data. However, from the last decade GIS has become a decision support system. GIS emerged as a major branch of science like geography, geology, civil engineering, environmental science etc. The major advantage of using GIS is its ability to link the spatial and Aspatial data which helps to perform different types of analysis depending upon the objectives of the user and derive some meaningful information.
The workshop aims to highlight the importance of GIS, its applications in various fields to the students, research scholars and research aspirants of the institute.
