CSRD is an NGO, situated at Pudukkad of Thrissur District, the cultural capital of Kerala. We are dealing with various Central and State government projects relating to Water Supply, Natural Resource Management etc. We have more than 7 years of experience in implementation of GIS in various projects like Watershed Management, River Bank Mapping, Asset Mapping etc. During all these years we have gained tremendous amount of knowledge in GIS, so we decided to start short term courses for GIS aspirants. We not only consider in gaining knowledge but also believe in sharing of knowledge. Our students may get the opportunity to participate in ongoing projects, where they can learn GIS in a practical environment.
