Bangalore Offers Unique Course on GIS

Geographical Information Systems (GIS) is suddenly the buzzword. Every government agency of significance wants to use it to get a better idea of Bangalore, its extent, its micro mapping and much more so that they can plan better, monitor development better, and yes, be more efficient. Considering the lack of urban planning in our cities, the use/understanding of basic GIS apps will be a promising step towards making people aware of its benefits in planning urban spaces effectively.
