Advanced Course in Remote Sensing & GIS
15 – 26 May 2006, SUPARCO HQs, Karachi


ISNET offered sponsorship to participants from ISNET member countries for a training course on “Advanced Course in Remote Sensing & GIS”. This course was organised by SUPARCO from 13 May to 24 May 2006.
 
 

The course was aimed at providing concepts and knowledge on the advanced techniques being used in GIS development and applications. It also covered issues relating to operationalisation of Remote sensing and GIS in different discipline areas.

Two participants each from General Organisation of Remote Sensing (GORS), Syria and Remote Sensing Authority (RSA), Sudan attended the course.

 

 
Training Course on Photogrammetry & Remote Sensing
21 Aug – 01 Sep, 2006, SUPARCO HQs, Karachi


Photogrammetry and Satellite Remote Sensing technologies are widely being utilized for earth resource mapping, monitoring and modelling in a variety of discipline areas e.g Agriculture, Forestry, Hydrology, Urban Planning, Civil Engineering etc. To draw optimum benefits from these technologies, development of knowledge base and experience is a must.
 
 

The topics relevant to Photogrammetry, satellite remote sensing technology, its applications as well as available tools in handling different satellite data types and extracting information to be readily used by managers, planners and policy makers were covered. The course was targeted for those who are working in applications of these technologies in their relevant departments/ companies/ organizations of their respective countries.

 

 
ISNET International Seminar & Exhibition 2006
Space Technology & Applications
Institute of Space Technology, Islamabad (11 – 15 September 2006)


ISNET held a 4-day International Seminar on Space Technology & Applications from 11- 14 September 2006 followed by an excursion trip on 15th September 2006. The venue of the seminar was Institute of Space Technology, a premier Space Technology education institution of Pakistan located on Islamabad Highway. After conclusion of the Seminar, participants were taken for an excursion trip to Archeological site of Taxila, present the remnants of the Gandhara Civilization.

The Seminar included sessions on Remote Sensing Applications, Satellite Communication, Satellite Navigation, Space Science and TeleMedicine. Forty nine papers and presentations were delivered at the Seminar which included six commercial presentations delivered by International corporations.

Twelve participants from Azerbaijan, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Iran, Jordan and Sudan presented scientific papers. Nineteen participants from 6 Pakistani organisations including SUPARCO participated in the Seminar to present scientific papers. Furthermore eight other organizations sent their representatives to attend the Seminar and acquire know-how on latest developments in Space Technology and its applications in daily life. Students from local universities also attended the Seminar.

Training Course on Remote Sensing & Digital Image Processing
18–29 Dec 2006, SUPARCO HQs, Karachi


Satellite Remote Sensing technologies and digital image processing techniques are widely being utilized for earth resource mapping, monitoring and modelling in a variety of discipline areas e.g. Agriculture, Forestry, Hydrology, Urban Planning, Civil Engineering etc. To draw optimum benefits from these technologies, development of knowledge base and experience is a must.

In this regard, a two week training course on Remote Sensing & Digital Image Processing was organised by SUPARCO from 18 – 29 December 2006 at SUPARCO Headquarters, Karachi. 22 participants from national organisations as well as OIC member countries including two from Sudan, one from Bangladesh and one from Nigeria, with the financial assistance of ISNET, attended the course. One Pakistani national studying in Germany, also attended the course.

The topics relevant to satellite remote sensing technology and its applications, digital image processing as well as available tools in handling different satellite data types and extracting information to be readily used by managers, planners and policy makers were covered. The course was targeted for those who are working in applications of these technologies in their relevant departments /companies /organizations.
