Remote sensing (RS) is the science of collecting or gathering information about an object in geographic space without being in contact with that object. Remote sensing of earth includes capturing information about earth's surface, the objects on earth's surface and surrounding atmosphere.
RS encompasses tools and techniques for capturing and processing remote information in the form of digital images (satellite, aerial or terrestrial), or point clouds (LIDAR or laser scanning). RS is thus the major and most important source of raster input for GIS, having applications in wide range of domains ranging from environmental monitoring and modeling, global climate change, natural resource management, forestry, agriculture and many more.
DoRS focuses on the basic and advance education of RS and research using RS data for various Earth resource applications as well as its integration with other GIS and field data.
Department of RS have highly qualified faculty both PhD and MS with specialization in RS data applications in various fields.
