Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham was featured in the ArcGIS Newsletter (April 2021, Volume 15), published by ESRI.
Development and data are highly interdependent, and both are necessary for mankind to make sustainable progress. GIS brings a whole new dimension to this duo, called precision. It is a ground-breaking technology that has made it possible for us to revisit and interpret data in different ways.
Amrita’s initiative to inculcate GIS in its curriculum has led to a cooperative partnership with Esri India. This partnership will leverage GIS applications for various research initiatives at Amrita. A Center of Excellence in the area of “Geoinformatics and Spatial Analytics & Modelling” will be established at Amrita with dedicated Research, Development and Test facilities. The center will focus on capacity building for geospatial research in several domains.
