On 24/01/2018, MIRAS Techshop ’18 of Department of Civil Engineering in RCET conducted workshop on “Applications of Remote Sensing”. Board of Directors, Chief Guest Dr.Satheesh Herbert Singh,M.Sc, Ph.D(Project Consultant) presided over the function.
The gathering was welcomed by Student Aby Alexander,Final Year Civil Engineering and Chief guest was introduced by Akhil Alexander Final Year Civil Engineering.The resource person Dr.Satheesh Herbert Singh presented his experience in the field of Remote Sensing. He insisted on the importance and the Application of Remote Sensing. This workshop focussed on Resource Exploration, Environmental Study, Land use, Site Investigation, Archaeological Investigation and Natural Hazards Study. In practice, remote sensing is the standoff collection through the use of a variety of devices for gathering information on a given object or area. In remote sensing, information transfer is accomplished by use of electromagnetic radiation (EMR). EMR is a form of energy that reveals its presence by the observable effects it produces when it strikes the matter. EMR is considered to span the spectrum of wavelengths from 10-10 mm to cosmic rays up to 1010 nm, the broadcast wavelengths, which extend from 0.30-15mm.
This application area included regional planning and site investigation, Terrain Mapping and Analysis, Water Resource Engineering. It also explained about how remote sensing could become a valuable resource of input data to GIS for CIVIL Engineers in the future. More than 100+ Students participated from other Colleges and got benefited. Certificate was distributed by Principal Dr.R.Rajesh and thus the workshop was concluded by Student Ms.Nivetha, Final Year Civil Engineering by thanking the supporting pillars for making this workshop successful.
