Geoinformatics is the integration of different disciplines dealing with spatial information. The advent of Satellite Remote Sensing and subsequent development of the Global Positioning System (GPS) and Geographical Information System (GIS) have made significant changes in surveying and map making. In light of this, both in the academia and the industry, these topics have been brought together under one umbrella term – Geoinformatics.
Open Data Kit (ODK) is a free and open-source set of tools to promote mobile data collection solutions. ODK provides an out-of-the-box solution for users to:
· Build a data collection form or survey
· Collect the data on a mobile device and populate a server
· Aggregate data on a server and extract it in useful formats QGIS (previously known as Quantum GIS) is a free and open Source cross-platform desktop geographic information system (GIS) application that supports viewing, editing, and analysis of geospatial data. QGIS supports both raster and vector layers; vector data is stored as either point, line, or polygon features. Multiple formats of raster images are supported, and the software can geo-reference images.

Participants will be able to learn, Advancement in the field of Geoinformatics & open source software tools Open Data Kits, QGIS.
