Conferences

SIG believes in giving its students a friendly yet motivating learning atmosphere. After all, it is through this holistic exposure across different learning platforms that SIG is able to deliver geoinformatics professionals as per industry standard. As part of its learning environment, SIG encourages its students to step out of the confines of the campus and participate in conferences and seminars on Geoinformatics across the country. Here is a brief overview of the conferences that the students from SIG have attended till date:

Urban Change detection with the help of Cellular Automata

This project examines the use of GIS and Remote Sensing in mapping Land Use Land Cover in Pune between 1999 and 2005 so as to detect the changes that has taken place in this status between these periods.It is also use to produce a land use land cover map of Pune at different epochs in order to detect the changes that have taken place particularly in the built-up land and subsequently predict likely changes that might take place in the same over a given period.
