Welcome

Dear Colleagues and Geospatial enthusiasts,

On behalf of organizing committee, I take great pride in welcoming all of you to attend this two-day International Event on December 10- 11, 2019 organized by Land Management Training Center in collaboration with International Society for Remote Sensing and Photogrammetry (TC V / WG 7 and TC IV / WG 6), Nepal Remote Sensing and Photogrammetric Society and Nepal Institution of Chartered Surveyors in Dhulikhel, a naturally majestic city of Nepal rich in ancient traditions and culture.

Geospatial domain has the characteristics of rapid development and adoption of newer technologies. This calls for a challenging task of harnessing recent scientific advances across multiple fields of education and research; then accelerate and guide evolution of geospatial technology. To ensure this, this workshop incorporates a wide spectrum of themes and, will provide a perfect global networking platform as it brings together renowned professionals from all over the world. The primary goal of this workshop is to cater exchange of recent research achievements and break-through ideas on cutting edge geospatial technologies and latest trends in geospatial education amongst multi-disciplinary group of attendees. This international workshop also aims to flourish collaborative relationship among national/international institutions, academicians and professionals for mutual benefit through knowledge sharing and technology transfer.

I believe especially our international participants will enjoy the scenic beauty of naturally enriched mountains during your stay in Nepal. I sincerely invite you to join us to make this workshop a fruitful and memorable event.
