Esri India To Skill Over 2 Lakh Students In GIS
Launches a new program for Higher Education Institutes
Esri India, a Geographic Information System (GIS) Software & Solutions provider announced its drive to skill over 2 lakh students in GIS technologies in India over the next 3 years.
As per the Government of India’s estimates, the Geospatial Data economy is expected to grow from 30,000 Cr. to about 1 lakh Cr. by the year 2030. The government is encouraging higher usage of GIS technology in many segments like Smart Cities, AMRUT, Water Resources, Agriculture, Insurance, Land management & SVAMITVA, and Utilities. With the new guidelines released by the government earlier this year on de-regulating Geospatial data, the use of GIS in the private sector is also likely to increase significantly. The increased usage of GIS is likely to create 10 lakh jobs by 2025.
Students, researchers, and professors will have access to e-learning content available at MyEsri Learning portal and guided lessons through Esri’s Learn Hub. As part of this program, Esri India will also offer faculty training and student engagement programs.
