Description:
The Indian Institute of Remote Sensing is the training and education arm of the Indian Department of Space. Located in Dehradun, the institute offers courses in Remote sensing and Geographic Information Systems (GIS), ranging in length from one week to two years.

History

Formerly known as the Indian Photo-Interpretation Institute (IPI), the IIRS was set up in 1966 under the patronage of the Survey of India to provide training on remote sensing technology. The success of satellite remote sensing in the early 1970s created a need for personnel trained in the use of remote sensing technology. The IIRS was merged with the National Remote Sensing Agency (NRSA) in July 1976. In 1980 the NRSA was put under the umbrella of the Indian Government's Department of Space.

Courses

The focus of the IIRS is training and education in the field of geoinformatics. Technology and applications of Remote Sensing, GIS and GPS are taught in the form of training and education.
