Multidisciplinary Centre for Geoinformatics

About Us
Geoinformatics is described as the science and technology dealing with the structure and character of spatial information, its acquisition, classification, quantification, storage, processing, portrayal and dissemination. The domain also includes the infrastructure necessary to secure optimal use of this information. It has multiple applications in diverse fields. Some of these fields/applications are, Defense & Security / Target Detection, Hydrology / Irrigation, Disaster / Floods / Glacial Lake Outbursts, Urban / Environment / Pollution, Agriculture / Crop monitoring etc. Geoinformatics is essentially a multidisciplinary subject with different aspects of this subject dealt by different branches of engineering. For example, development of sensors/resolution/ payload/energy consumption etc is dealt by experts in electronics, image processing algorithms and extraction information etc are dealt by experts in computers and information technology and various applications of geo-informatics are in the field of Civil engineering, agriculture etc.

A Multidisciplinary Centre for Geoinformatics (MCG) at Delhi Technological University was inaugurated on 5th March, 2019 by the Hon’ble Vice Chancellor, Prof. Yogesh Singh. The MCG has been established with the vision to be a world class multidisciplinary center in the field of geospatial and geoinformatics education, research and consultancy. The Centre is currently progressing a few projects / awards / fellowships awarded by Department of Science and Technology, New Delhi, Space Applications Centre, ISRO, Ahmedabad and National Mission on Himalayan Studies, Almora . Besides, students are currently enrolled for M.Tech. along with Ph.D at the Centre. In future, the Centre aims to work in close coordination with Central / State Government Agencies and Industries in fulfilment of Government objectives, capacity building, research and consultancy.
