Capacity building goes beyond the mere acquisition of technical skills; it’s a holistic endeavor aimed at nurturing individuals, organizations, and entire communities to become more agile, knowledgeable, and adaptable. It’s about equipping individuals with the tools they need to drive positive change, make informed decisions, and contribute significantly to the growth of their respective industries. Recognizing the profound impact of capacity building, the geospatial world has embarked on a visionary initiative, inviting everyone to be part of this transformative journey.
Amid India’s rapid growth, there are two critical aspects of urban planning that focus on our attention: the development of new cities and the modernization of existing urban systems. To enhance the quality of life for our citizens, we must prioritize essential factors such as safe and reliable infrastructure, efficient power distribution, robust transportation networks, and effective waste and water management.
In a world where precision, accuracy, real-time information, and connectivity are paramount, Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) and positioning technologies are emerging as unsung heroes. These technologies have a profound impact on our daily lives and have transformed the way we navigate, collect data, and make informed decisions.
As we journey towards 2047, we must recognize water as a lifeline for sustainable futures. Geospatial technologies empower us to make informed decisions that promote responsible water use, protect our environment, and ensure access to clean water for all. It’s a lifeline we cannot afford to ignore, and with technology as our ally, we have the tools to safeguard this precious resource for generations to come.
Geospatial space economy emphasizes the role of space and geospatial technology as forces that can significantly improve various aspects of society and industry. It explores how these technologies are leveraged to create a force multiplier for a better tomorrow. Indian space capabilities are being harnessed for commercial purposes and the roadmap for industries to tap into these opportunities. It covers aspects like satellite technology and launch services available for commercialization of India’s space capabilities as a roadmap for industries.
Agriculture has been the backbone of human civilization for centuries. As the global population continues to grow, the demand for food is escalating. To meet this ever-increasing demand, agriculture must evolve and embrace innovative technologies. One of the critical aspects of modern agriculture is efficient irrigation, which is essential for sustainable crop production.
At Geosmart India 2023, we delve into the powerful alliance between geospatial technology and mining, witnessing how it uncovers valuable resources and reshapes the mining landscape. Before the advent of geospatial technology, mining and exploration were limited by guesswork and rudimentary techniques.
The environment is the very foundation of life on Earth, encompassing all the living and non-living elements that surround us. It includes the air we breathe, the water we drink, the soil that nurtures plants, and the intricate web of biodiversity that supports all life forms. However, our planet is now facing a pressing issue […]
In 2022, the national geospatial policy was introduced, recognizing geospatial data and knowledge as essential national infrastructure with significant social, economic, and environmental value. This policy aims to support sustainable national development goals by establishing a citizen-centric approach and a comprehensive framework for the holistic development of the geospatial ecosystem, based on the principles of GKI (Geospatial Knowledge Infrastructure) and IGIF (Integrated Geospatial Information Framework).
In the age of advanced technology and data-driven decision-making, geospatial information has emerged as a game-changer across industries worldwide. Recognizing its immense potential, India has been actively fostering the growth of the geospatial and allied industry. Among the numerous platforms that promote innovation, collaboration, and knowledge-sharing in this field, GeoSmart India stands out as a leading conference. Let’s explore the significance of GeoSmart India in shaping the Indian economy and propelling the geospatial revolution.
