Shillong, May 26: The North Eastern Space Applications Centre (NESAC) announced plans to train approximately 50 women in geospatial technology. This initiative, revealed by an official on Sunday, is designed to equip women leaders with advanced technical skills to enhance their ability to serve their communities effectively.

Geospatial technology involves tools, software, and methodologies for gathering, processing, and analyzing data tied to specific locations on Earth. This technology is crucial for applications in agriculture, water and soil management, and environmental monitoring.

The intensive two-day training session is scheduled for late May and will take place at NESAC’s Umiam office. This program is a collaborative effort between the National Commission for Women (NCW) and the Rambhau Mhalgi Prabodhini (RMP).

“This is a unique initiative to impart Geo-Spatial technical skills to women leaders working for the cause of society. Elected women leaders, women working in government institutions, and NGO leaders engaged in disaster management, environmental conservation, climate change, and soil and water rejuvenation are encouraged to register for this opportunity to upscale their skills,” the official stated.

Participants will be trained to identify and utilize satellite-derived information for various applications, including agriculture, water and soil management, and methods to address regional issues related to water, agriculture, forestry, animal husbandry, and the environment using satellite data.
