  • Webinar/Online

  • National

  • Webniar Learning

  • Remote Sensing and GIS

  • Organised by NWA in association with WMO & COMET, USA

Overview

The program will comprise of online sessions and will cover the following topics:  Working with Vector data using QGIS 3.12, classification of Vector Data, symbology and labeling the data.  Designing User Defined Symbols in QGIS  Creation of vector data using Digitization process using QGIS  Remote Sensing Image Interpretation Techniques to identify Various Civil Structure in the image  GIS Application for Mapping of various Control Structures like Dam, Flood Embankments, bunds, dikes, spurs, levees including river Reservoirs, etc using Google Satellite Image in QGIS 3.12.  Advance Digitization Methods in QGIS  Download already available Vector data like national, state

Objective

The aim of this Distance Learning training program is to give awareness regarding GIS technology and learn its use to create a basic GIS MAP using Open Source GIS (QGIS 3.12). This training would enable the water professionals to map the Assets of Flood management projects like Flood Embankments, bunds, dikes, spurs, levees, and seawalls and also in the presentation of data in a GIS MAP format. The program has been designed in such a way that the participants will have to devote only about their two/three hours daily, as per his/her choice, during the training period and will not affect much in their day-to-day official work. A Whats App group of the participants would also be created for clarifications and handholding by the experts for some period.
