The Esri India Young Scholar Program gives students and fresh graduates from across the country an opportunity to be part of the world's largest spatial technology conference – Esri User Conference, San Diego and meet the sharpest GIS minds on the planet.
The nationwide competition celebrates excellence in geospatial study and is open to undergraduates and fresh graduates from geospatial science disciplines at universities and colleges in India.
If you are full-time student, aged between 18 and 30 years, of an Indian university in an undergraduate or graduate program or fresh graduates (within last 1 year) you can join the contest. You can submit your research or awe-inspiring project that uses Esri GIS technology to participate.
India has embarked on an ambitious journey to transform into a Rs 4 trillion economy by 2022, the 75th year of the country’s Independence. Niti Aayog, the policy thinktank of the central government, charted the route of this journey by unveiling in December 2018 a comprehensive national strategy for New India that spelt out the objectives to be achieved by 2022-23.
In technology, Geographic Information System (GIS) has a key role in driving this vision of digital transformation. GIS is already being used across various government initiatives which are not only driving the economic and social transformation of our nation but also helping us to be resilient and sustainable. GIS is being used to monitor and meet the country’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) enabling better infrastructure, accessibility and a better standard of living. With technology as a core foundation, the New India vision aims to solve core challenges across various sectors such as agriculture, water, health, necessary infrastructure and governance addressed across 41 areas.

Agriculture plays a very significant role in the overall economic outlook for India. However, the challenges faced by this sector have been growing multi-fold – changing demographic lifestyles, urbanization, climate change, natural / man-made disasters and much more.
The technological advancement in Agritech offer promising solutions to improve the overall yield and productivity of the sector. Precision farming and precision protection are gaining ground. GIS and Remote sensing, in particular, are driving major innovations. Start-ups are creating innovative solutions - from hand-held food adulteration meters, to highly integrated databases that deal with multiple marketing chains. Even Indian government has acknowledged the central role of geospatial technology in proactive and dynamic policy-making that will help double farm incomes. At least four of eight sub-missions under the National Mission for Sustainable Agriculture, and the Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sinchai Yojana depend on spatial analysis powered by GIS.
Today, the chance to bring a very real paradigm shift lies in the hands of geospatial experts everywhere. Convergence of GIS, IoT, Big Data Analytics and Artificial Intelligence / Machine Learning gives you, GIS professionals, much more power to solve the complex problems of this sector. Explore the latest issue of ArcIndia News to experience how you can use GIS to drive new revolution in this sector.
Esri India has launched the third edition of the GeoInnovation – An Acceleration Platform for GIS Startupreneurs. GeoInnovation program is a platform to showcase the role of Startups in enabling the wider adoption and commercialization of geospatial solutions to solve major problems for Government organizations and commercial enterprises.
The challenge would empower startups to bring their GIS based business ideas to market, build a strong network with industry experts, investors and peer group. Most importantly, the program will give selected start-ups a platform to pitch their software products to Esri’s global customers. Esri India would provide technology mentorship and access to Esri software for integration with ArcGIS platform to the qualified startups.
National mapping organizations (NMOs) in India have a vital role in providing relevant and accurate geospatial intelligence to support a variety of activities such as economic development, research, natural resource management, safety, and national security. NMOs are the leaders in collecting, managing, combining, and promoting the use of accurate and up-to-date geospatial data for use by the government, businesses, and the public.
As the value of geospatial information becomes more widely recognized, customers are demanding more sophisticated products and greater access to the data. Customers are demanding more content, want to integrate data from multiple sources, integrate spatial data with non-spatial and expect currency, on-demand accessibility, and application-ready formats.
This trend is driving NMOs to re-evaluate their offerings as well as how they interact with their customers. NMOs need to move from the separate silos of traditional map production workflows to a modern, multipurpose workflow based on a central database offering a range of products and services: "capture once, use many times."
A clear vision and roadmap towards GIS platform-based approach would enable NMOs to build a workflow based Enterprise Data Production and Dissemination System that would help them to adapt to this new paradigm. Such a GIS-based platform would enable their processes by managing the high-volume collections, task-oriented production, and supporting the quick sharing of products. This would enable extending open geospatial capabilities to any user and allows access by any application on any device anywhere, anytime facilitation collaboration and sharing.
