The Post-Graduate Certificate in Geoinformatics (PGCGI) is a continuing education programme that intends to familiarise learners with the basic concepts of geoinformatics technologies. Geoinformatics technologies deal with acquisition, storage, processing and dissemination of spatial information. Geoinformatics is an emerging field and demand for geoinformatics professionals is increasing by the day due to its application potential in several fields such as rural and urban planning, environmental monitoring, natural resources management, management of natural hazards and disasters, etc. This programme is built around concepts and skills at the basic level to make it easy for a learner who wishes to understand how geoinformatics can be put to practical use.


Objectives of the programme are to:

  • provide theoretical knowledge and hands-on training to the learners in the basics of geoinformatics technologies,
  • acquaint learners with the use of geoinformatics technology in analysing spatial data, and
  • widen opportunities of learners for higher studies and developing careers in different sectors of employment involving geoinformatics.


This programme would be helpful for the interested learners to develop skills in this field for further studies and also to pursue a career in government organisations, industries and educational institutes in the field of natural resources management, natural hazards and disaster management, environment management, urban and rural planning, business applications and geospatial education.


Target Groups:

  • Defence personnel
  • CBSE school teachers teaching geospatial technology related course
  • Working professionals with little or no exposure to geoinformatics
  • Graduates interested in developing skills to work with geospatial data.
