About B.Sc. Geoinformatics :

The scope of Geoinformatics is tremendous in and outside India.

Digital technology has percolated very deep into our daily life. The importance of data driven and digital driven technologies is increasing day by day. Government has also identified the potential of the field and has opened many new vistas of business in this field by making the satellite data freely available to the users in our country. Thus, the area of geoinformatics is an emerging and occupational area now-a-days.

Geoinformatics is the technology that supports basic scientific reasons behind geography as well as looks after the societal, developmental, and environmental challenges. It is a subject that deals with the problems of geography, cartography, photogrammetry, etc. and finds solutions to the problems. The scope of this field keeps expanding and provides wider job opportunities to the people. It will not be an exaggeration to say that the dream of digital India cannot be accomplished without Geoinformatics. With the upsurge of computer science and mobile technologies the human life is vastly digitized.

The subject caters to the dire need of large number of skilled graduates and post graduates who are capable of not only using but also developing software related to Geographical Information Services (GIS) with a scientific approach so that the data driven requirements of large segments of the society can be targeted and satisfied. Also, the course prepares students who can work for GIS Business companies which are providing GIS solutions to many users including Government agencies, marketing enterprises, financial enterprises, insurance providers, agriculture, aviation, defence, scientific and social researchers, remote sensing related requirements like urban planning, etc.
