    This portal an initiative of the Natural Resources Data Management System (NRDMS) of the Department of Science and Technology, Government of India under its capacity building initiative to develop capacity and enhance training in geospatial technologies in India.The report of the Task Force of the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India (2010) on geospatial education in the country has recommended that the nation must enable itself in this technology area and create a knowledge base that will give it an edge in the international arena but also bring benefits to its own national development efforts

    In order to develop the course /training module on capacity building in Geospatial Technologies, DST has supported an R&D project to Institute of Environment Education and Research, Bharati Vidyapeeth University, Pune. In this regard, a national portal on Geospatial Technology was also developed by them. A large bank of tutorials based on GIS, Remote Sensing, Spatial Analysis WebGIS sectors have been uploaded to the portal. It consists of data base of resource persons as well as the outline of three week training programme. The portal is being used regularly and accessed by almost 8000 people per month. This may be viewed through the website : www.dst-iget.in. I hope the efforts made by this group would be of immense help to the new trainees for upscaling their knowledge in Geospatial Technologies.

    Natural Resource Data Management System (NRDMS) programme under the Department of Science & Technology (DST) has undergone upscaling in its capability for addressing area specific problems with the use of Geospatial Technologies. Thus, it is felt essential to promote the Geospatial Technologies and its applications in addressing the information based requirements for implementation of the developmental schemes of Government at various levels i.e. district and sub-district. To address this concept, capacity building and training on Geospatial Technologies has been identified as one of the themes under NRDMS programme. To promote this concept, NRDMS division of DST is making concerted efforts over the last 3-4 years to provide support for conducting training programmes to academic institutions and national laboratories. So far, about 700 faculty members and students in these institutions have been trained on the applications of Geospatial Technologies.
