Viet Nam - 07 January, 2015
In an effort to improve the capacity on geographic information systems (GIS) and remote sensing of individuals and organizations related to natural resources management in central Viet Nam, the training course “Application of GIS and Remote Sensing in Forest Planning and Management” was given from 3-6 December 2014 in Hue by TBI Viet Nam.
The training course focused on designing and developing a geo-database; exploring Landsat images to understand conservation efforts; and updating data from smartphones and simple tools combined with productive software.
The course was part of TBI Viet Nam’s capacity building component, which aims to improve the capacity of TBI Viet Nam’s counterpart agencies and relevant organizations working in agro-forestry field in Viet Nam so that they can plan and manage forest effectively.
Participants were offered the chance to develop their existing knowledge and skills regarding GIS while learning how to incorporate data from various management and oversight software programs including MapInfo, Microstation and Excel.
