The Centre for Geo-informatics of Environmental Management and Policy Research Institute (EMPRI) was approved in the 42nd Governing body meeting dated 10.03.2015 and the same was established at EMPRI. EMPRI provides technical as well as research support on various programme involving GIS as a major component.
Environmental sciences are relying progressively on digital spatial data acquired from field investigations, instrument observations and remotely sensed images, analyzed by geographical information systems (GIS), distributed through complex infrastructures, and visualized by and for an ever-increasing variety of users. The technologies supporting these processes are at the core of Geo-informatics.
The application of geospatial technology in different sectors is the demand of current time to take intelligent decisions for sustainable management of natural as well as manmade resources. The growing awareness and interest in making smart decisions has valued the application of GIS and put forward this technology. The application and benefits of GIS are immeasurable.
GIS technology is one of the solution to meet the huge demand by Government, educational organizations and business for various planning, management and allocation of resources through better understanding complex real world problems more easily by predict the near and far future as well.
Owing to the rapid changes and developments in geo-information acquisition, analysis and dissemination, EMPRI is well-appointed with scientific staff along with technological skills that can keep pace with and validate the relevancy of developments and the quality of the Geo Data, processes and geo-information. The Centre for Geo-informatics division of EMPRI is in constant efforts to strive for excellence to tackle the challenges, to design and develop algorithms, models, and tools that can process the geo-spatial data into trustworthy, actionable information. EMRPI is working on various natural resource conservation projects and programs and almost all projects have a key role of Geo-informatics.
