Geospatial Education: A Key to Unlock India’s Geo-Economy
India’s geospatial market is expected to soar to 1 lakh crore by 2030 and create 10 lakh jobs by 2025.
But the country faces a shortage of skilled geo-professionals who can harness the power of geospatial data and technology. How can academia bridge this gap and prepare the next generation of geo-leaders? The answer lies in geospatial education, which can foster spatial thinking and innovation among the young minds. With the new liberalized policy on geospatial data and the new National Education Policy, India has a golden opportunity to transform its geo-education system and boost its geo-economy.
