About Symposium

GIS has moved from being a niche technology into a mainstream platform for Business Intelligence and Spatial Analytics. Many of GIS academicians are also working as GIS Knowledge Experts and playing a critical role by actively consulting various government organizations on GIS and the role it can play in various government initiatives. It is this thought leadership of GIS academician that is bringing a positive impact to the Indian society. In this Symposium, GIS academicians and industry experts will come together and share their GIS knowledge on adoption of geospatial technologies and will take collaborative measures for promoting teaching excellence in GIS teaching and Research.

The National Symposium will focus on setting out innovative trends and technology driven attitude through the ideas shared by industry and academia experts. Focus will be made in understanding the concepts of Geospatial Technology and how it can be useful in bringing the world together through participation of both academia and industry. People from academia, government and industry will join hands and discuss about the emerging trends in geospatial, those goals of industry and the role of academia in reaching. Vision on GIS industries and trends, deciding roadmaps in GIS and have better visibility in working together for the benefit of both academia and industry.
