India: The Department of Science and Technology, India, has sponsored several training programmes on hyperspectral remote sensing (HSRS) and applications.
HSRS is a state-of-the-art, emerging and high potential Remote Sensing (RS) technique. Over the last decade, the data acquisition through satellite & airborne HSRS sensors revolutionised the resources exploration processes. Currently, HSRS techniques are extensively used in multifaceted fields including natural resources, man-made objects, hydrocarbons, planetary-explorations, water & quality, air-pollution, soil, agriculture and forestry-studies etc. Realising its importance, the DST-NRDMS (Natural Resources Data Management System), has identified HSRS as one of the major thrust areas of R&D. To expand the research programme further, DST has sponsored HSRS training programmes as per the following schedule.
