What is Geo informatics

Geoinformatics deals with the study of earth and its allied informatics. It is the scientific technology dealing with the spatial information - the digital connection between location, people, and activities. This information can graphically illustrate what is happening (where, how and why) to show the insight and impact of the past, the present and the (likely) future. And it ends with a map that a common man can easily understand and interpret. BE/B.Tech in Geo-Informatics is a 4-year program. The use of Geoinformatics helps to tackle the problems related to Geography, Geoscience and related branches of Engineering. There is much geospatial software like ArcGIS, ENVI, Micro Station and other opensource software like QGIS, GRASS, SAGA which helps in GIS analysis. You can pursue M.Tech in Geo-Informatics after successful completion of BE/B.Tech.

Eligibility Criteria

For UG: Candidates must have passed 10+2 with minimum qualifying marks in aggregate with Physics, Chemistry, Biology as core subjects. Independent entrance tests for this programme are also held by the various state, central, and private universities which mostly require 50% as the prerequisite to appear for the test.

For PG: Candidates must hold a degree in Bachelor of Engineering/B.Tech in Geo-Informatics/Geo-Information Technology along with a good score in entrance tests held for PG programme held by the various state, central, and private universities.

Scope of Geo informatics

  • Graduates/postgraduates are mostly hired by central government agencies such as the Department of Space - National Remote Sensing Agency (NRSA Hyderabad),  Regional Remote Sensing Application Centre (RRSAC Kharagpur, Dehradun, Jodhpur, Nagpur, and Bangalore), and Indian Space Research Organisation, (ISRO Bangalore).
  • Professor, Reader, and Research positions are available in academic institutions and the prospects of starting one's own enterprise.

whether the admission for m. tech in geotechnology and geo informatics in bharathidhasan university trichy is based on marks obtained in 12th std or by entrance test

Animesh Vats Student Expert 26th Mar, 2020


Well first of all since it's a mtech that is a master's course and that is why admission must be on the basis of gate score or any other entrance test score and not class twelfth score cause it's not an undergraduate degree admission.

I hope my answer helps.

All the best.
