About ISRS

Web Link :- About ISRS

Indian Society of Remote Sensing (ISRS) was established in 1969 as "Indian Society of Photo-interpretation" with the main objective of advancement and dissemination of remote sensing technology and education by conjunctive use of remote sensing with conventional mehods in the fields of survey, planning and management of natural resources and environment by organising seminars/ symposia and by publishing journal, bulletins, proceedings, etc. From its modest beginning with 56 members, the Society has grown into a premier professional body with a membership of over 3700, including both individual and Institutional members. The Journal of the Society, JISRS, a quarterly publication, is the only journal in the country exclusively dealing with remote sensing technology and its applications. The Society has been organising annual conventions and national symposia regularly since 1981, giving opportunities to the remote sensing community in the country to present their papers and discuss the problems and methods of applications of remote sensing in development and management of resources. Remote Sensing has been universally recognised as a highly effective and extremely versatile technology for evaluation and management of natural resources and environment. With the advent and advancement of Geographic Information System (GIS), the concept of multidisciplinary integrated approach got an impetus in monitoring and management of resources and environment. Realising this in recent years ISRS is giving emphasis on application of integrated approach for solving various types of real world problems related to resource management, environmental assessment and disaster management.
