GIS and RS Lab Facilities
The department has two well-equipped GIS and Remote Sensing laboratories with a total number of sixty (60) computers. The computers and connected with LAN and internet facilities. The laboratories furnished with the latest versions of ArcGIS software with full extension packages. Both vector and raster data can be operated with the available facilities. The laboratories are also articulated with ERDAS IMAGINE Remote Sensing software with Atkor and ENVI extensions. Lab are also flooded with a number of relevant software like Quantum GIS, CAD, SPSS, R, Python etc. The labs are enriched for accomplishing GIS modeling (including Digital Elevation Model DEM and Triangulated Irregular Network TIN), terrain analysis and Web GIS.

With a view to provide better understanding on GIS and to develop personals for utilizing the full potentials and applications of GIS technology in spatial analysis and decision support system the Department of Geography and Environment, University of Dhaka designed the courses on GIS in two distinct modules:
- ArcGIS 1: Fundamentals on GIS (45 Hours 3 Credit; Fee: 15,000 BDT)
- ArcGIS 2: Professional Training on GIS (62 Hours 4 Credit; Fee: 25,000 BDT)
- Special Certificate Training Course: Hot Spot and Regression Analysis Using GIS (08 Hours ; Fee: 4,500 BDT)
- RS 1: Fundamentals on Remote Sensing (45 Hours 3 Credit; Fee: 15,000 BDT)
ArcGIS 1: This course introduces GIS concepts and ArcGIS tools used to visualize real-world features, discover patterns, obtain information, and communicate that information to others. Using the ArcGIS platform, you will be able to create GIS maps, explore the data behind the maps, and analyze maps and data as you become a master in fundamental concepts that underlie GIS technology. In this course, you will acquire skills that will prepare you to perform the most common ArcGIS workflows. Primarily using ArcGIS for Desktop and ArcGIS Online, you will explore, manage, and analyze geographic data and create informative maps. The course covers techniques to effectively share your ArcGIS work with decision makers, colleagues, and the public.
ArcGIS 2: This course is for professional point of view. Those are working with ArcGIS but not get appropriate position to the organization or not to give the proper support to the organization. This course teaches essential concepts and skills needed to efficiently create a geodatabase, add data to it, and realistically model the real-world spatial relationships inherent to your data. You will learn about unique geodatabase features that help ensure data integrity over time and why the geodatabase is the preferred format for storing and managing geographic data. Course concepts apply to file-based and multiuser ArcSDE geodatabases. This course also teaches a standard workflow you can apply to any spatial analysis project. Working with a variety of ArcGIS tools and data, you will perform different types of analyses to efficiently create reliable results that support informed decision making. This course is taught using ArcGIS for Desktop Advanced and some course exercises use tools provided in the ArcGIS Spatial Analyst, 3d Analyst, Tracking Analysis, Network analysis extension etc. This course is taught using ArcGIS for Desktop Advanced.
Prerequisites of Course
ArcGIS 1: Graduates, Surveyor, Diploma in Survey, Epidemiologist, Engineers, Researchers, New GIS Users, GIS Manager and be comfortable working with a computer and using a windows-based file explorer and a web browser.
ArcGIS 2: Understand fundamentals on GIS concepts and have Arc GIS experiences equivalent to what is taught in ArcGIS 1, or have a solid understanding of GIS concepts and ArcGIS.
