General Information:

The Remote Sensing and Geographical Information Systems Laboratory provides an opportunities for researchers and students work together to advance knowledge in the application of geospatial technologies. Geographic Information System (GIS) is a system of hardware and software used for storage, retrieval, mapping and analysis of geographic data. Whereas remote sensing is the science of obtaining information about the Earth’s surface from a remote platform. In many studies it is required to integrate remote sensing and GIS technologies. They are widely recognized as supporting tools for the planning, monitoring and management of the appropriate utilization of resources at the country, regional and global levels.
