About CAG

Centre for Applied Geoinformatics of SAIARD is one of the dynamic platform devoted to promote the geospatial education and enhancement of capacities in that particular field both for the academic and non-academic fraternities. To fulfill these objectives, since its formation, we have continuously doing lots of capacity building and outreach programmes in collaboration with various academic and non-academic institutions. Along with that as one of the major objectives of SAIARD is to strengthen the hands of the Govt organisations so, to reach this vision we have signed MoU with the NATMO,a govt of India organisation. and work hard to make our coutntry strong in geospatial sector.

Courses

PG Diploma Courses (1 Year) 

Under the affiliation of Vidyasagar university

  1.  Diploma in Applied Geoinformatics 
  2. Diploma in Environmental Science & Geoinformatics
  3. Diploma in Urban Geoinformatics
Certificate Courses (6 / 3 Months)

Under the joint certification of NATMO, Govt of India

  1. Certificate Course on Advanced GIS
  2. Certificate Course on Digital Image Processing
