Call for Participation: Open Source Web GIS Tools for Rural Development | 6-10 June | NIRD&PR, Hyderabad
Open Source Web GIS Tools for Rural Development
June 06-10, 2017
Organized by CGARD, National Institute of Rural Development, (Ministry of Rural Development, GoI), Hyderabad
Course Team: Er. H K Solanki | Dr. P Kesava Rao
Need: The World Wide Web is fast becoming a standard platform for Geographic Information System (GIS). The instant access and global reach are the key advantages of Web-GIS over traditional desktop GIS. As geo-spatial technologies become more prevalent than ever, more and more non-profit organizations and government agencies are adopting web-GIS solutions to provide spatial services to the public. The ability to engage, empower and interact with the public has generated an appealing set of web-based GIS publishing tools. With application of only commercial Web GIS tools it is difficult to percolate the GIS upto lower levels. Moreover, in Rural Development sector and Web GIS tools will be useful in publishing the maps on internet and also for making Web-based GIS applications. Such Web-GIS applications can be used for GIS data collection, editing and updation at various levels, enabling the effective monitoring of the field projects along with data dissemination in public domain.
Objective: The main objective of this course will be to examine open source web-based GIS technologies, and to help rural development professionals and faculties/research scholars develop the knowledge and skills necessary to plan, design, develop and publish a web-based GIS solution using Open Source tools. Programme Content: The programme would broadly cover the basic concepts of GIS and GIS data types in general and Web GIS in particular. Basics with hands-on on Open Source tools for web publication of maps. Software like QGIS will be discussed for their Web Mapping capabilities in addition to other open source web mapping tools.
Programme Content: The programme would broadly cover the basic concepts of GIS and GIS data types in general and Web GIS in particular. Basics with hands-on on Open Source tools for web publication of maps. Software like QGIS will be discussed for their Web Mapping capabilities in addition to other open source web mapping tools. Although no prior programming experience is required, the course is specifically designed to bring out the hidden coding capabilities of non-coders working in the field of GIS and it can be a starting point for such people. The participants with having background in computer and GIS will be preferred.
Deliverables: After the course
- Participants will learn the difference between the desktop and web-GIS.
- Participants will learn what web publishing of maps is and will be able to publish the maps on internet.
- Participants will learn about QGIS tools and plugins helpful in web publishing of maps
- Participants will also learn configure Web-GIS tools like GeoServer and prepare spatial database for publishing maps on internet.
Training Methods: Training methods would be lecture, Hands on sessions & Exercises.
Participants Level: Officials from RD & PR, Watershed, MGNREGS, DRDAs, sectoral and Engineering Departments, NGOs, Faculties from Universities and Training Institutions.
Boarding/Lodging: Free accommodation and boarding will be provided to the participants at NIRD&PR guest house during the training Period.
Logistics: The participants are requested to report of their own to NIRDPR, Rajendranagar, Hyderabad. However their return dropping will be arranged by NIRDPR.
