ISNET/SUPARCO Training Course on Remote Sensing Applications to Land Administration

14-18 Jan 2013; Karachi, Pakistan
A week-long Training Course on Remote Sensing Applications to Land Administration was held at SUPARCO’s National Centre of Remote Sensing and Geoinformatics (NCRG), Karachi from 14-18 January 2013. This course addressed the issue of using new technologies such as RS and GIS in land administration and management thereby creating and maintaining the lands records in an effective manner as compared to existing manual techniques practiced by the land management authorities in the country. It also sought to impart specialised training on land administration management to researchers and surveyors from public, quasi-state and private sector organisations. In addition, it aimed to enhance the existing process of land administration using GIS and RS techniques.

It featured lectures and hands-on exercises on: introduction to RS and GIS; exploring RS and GIS techniques to be used in land administration; introduction to land administration and cadastral systems; land information management systems; parcel boundaries delineation from RS imagery; cadastral geo-database development; and integrating land register data and parcel boundaries

ISNET fully funded three participants from Azerbaijan, Iran and Sudan to attend the training course, namely:
  • Mr. Rustam Guluzade from Azerbaijan National Aerospace Agency (ANASA)
  • Mr. Mohsen Ghamary Asl from the Satellite System Institute of Iranian Space Agency (ISA)
  • Ms. Wedad Fadol Ahmed from the Remote Sensing Authority of Sudan (RSA)
Besides the intensive training session, participants were also taken to different city places for sight-seeing and offsite dinners, whereby they developed as much an understanding about the country’s rich cultural traditions of peace and harmony as they enjoyed its delicious cuisine.
