Geospatial Technologies for Agriculture Management

Duration : 80 hours

For effective and precise use of agriculture can be better done with Geospatial Technologies like Geographic Information System (GIS), Remote Sensing (RS), Global Positioning System (GPS) and Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR). Geospatial Technologies has massive application in effective, precise agriculture and better management of agriculture resources. This includes agro-ecological zone mapping, soil mapping and capability assessment, using NDVI analysis for crop health analysis, irrigation requirement analysis, land information system, yield estimation, disease /pest management and many more.

In this course, you will learn about GIS, RS, GPS, LiDAR concepts including spatial data structures, data sources and transfer methods, projections and coordinate systems, geo-referencing, fundamental of spatial analysis, with the hands on exercise in GIS Tools. Course exercise specially emphasis on agriculture case studies and related tasks. Concepts presented in lecture will be put into practice through hands-on laboratory exercises utilizing the GIS software product.

After completing the course you will be able to:

  • Describe the ArcMap and ArcCatalog user interface.
  • Understand Map concepts, how GIS works, technical terms in GIS, common task in GIS
  • Understand the various integrations of remote sensing, GIS and statistical data in the agriculture sector
  • Describe types of data model and its uses, difference between vector and raster, consideration of scale and generalization
  • Describe use of thematic maps in planning and decision making
  • Describe type of analysis can be perform in GIS, functions and their input, outputs
  • Understand digital image processing techniques, optical and hyper-spectral remote sensing
  • Explain different type of satellite, their specification for crop/vegetation analysis
  • Understand use of Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR – Sentinel 1 & 2) sensor in agriculture
  • Know how to download different types of satellite remote sensing data for free
  • Satellite image processing, classification and image interpretations
  • Know how to perform and interpret NDVI analysis for crop health / stress monitoring
