About the Conference

Geography enlightened a vast area of social sciences. It consists of earth's  land and ocean surface, different landforms and their formation, evolution, sub-surface phenomena, atmosphere and  related activities, environment and its attributes, environment as a habitat of living elements as well as a human being and their reciprocal relationships in a very critical and analytical approach. From the inception of Geography as a separate discipline, it evolved through its versatile, comprehensive and holistic nature. Geography has two basic aspects, Pure and Applied.

In recent past distinct paradigm shifts have been taking place in the  Geogrphical study using Geospatial Technology, Remote Sensing and Global Positioning syster through digital mechanism. The major  paradigm shifts in the behavioral geography, systematic geography, regional geography, medical geography, geospatial sustainability and cartography from paper map to digital map. It s now established that no discipline can survive without  adopting a new strategy and  technology.
