Sharing and cooperation in geo-information technology
Aziz, T. Lukman

Training course process comprise of theoretical remote sensing
and geographical information system, and computer practical
work and field surveying. The training courses need 8 hours 30
minute effectively per day included pause and lunches time.
Total time needed for theoretical materials is about 20 hours 20
minute, 34 hours 40 minute for practical work and 57 hours 30
minute for reporting.
The training course model for theory as student-lecturer
relationship in the class. The communication interactively
between the two parts can be perform cause a good transfer of
knowledge. The aim of the training course; the participants
would know the concept of remote sensing and be able to
operate some digital processing facilities. Usually the
participants are graduated from some various universities with
different major (from exact to inexact division). So can be
imagine how to transfer the training course materials that full of
mathematics terms to the participants. They need some extra
special effort in the studying process to accomplish the training
course aims.
Training course model in practical works, the
participants should be able to run some software packed like
corrections, transformations, digital classification, and adding
vector data into raster data, so can emerge some information
that participants see and translate the meanings behind the given
spatial and non spatial data.
Beside the processing works, the participants should
be able to operate GPS receivers to know the positions and then
also can make polygons in image classification process, because
sample data can be insert into ER-Mapper for supervised
The participants are also trained how to operate digitizers, to
receive vector data from maps as secondary data that are used as
auxiliary data to geographic information system.
Evaluation to the participants ability during the training course,
would be performs three times, final test that comprise of
written final test, written report and seminar.
The written final test are performs in the check points test and
filling test. The test include 45 problems, if a participant choose
right in the check point he will get +1, if he pick the wrong one
he will get -1 point. And if the participant fills a right one in the
filling problems he will get +5.
The form of the research report, similar to student's thesis, it
will be divided into five chapters. Chapter I Introduction,
Chapter II Remote Sensing and Geographies Information
System Theory, Chapter III Case Study in the training course
theory, Chapter IV Analysis, and Chapter V The Conclusion.
In the seminar, the participants that are divided into some
groups report their case study results after surveying and
processing their study objects. The seminar, monitor by their
trainers, eye witnessed by the others, and some special guesses.
The three components are the base of participant graduation.
The evaluation is very important for the participants in the
future, for instant, in BPPIT the best five from the final
evaluation will be promote to the next higher education.
The chance in remote sensing and geographical Information
system still wide open for either central governmental
institution or private company and individual person. It is
shown in many inquiry letters and interest of the participants in
the developments of satellite data performance in some
applications such as rice plant growth monitoring in Java, corral
monitoring in entire Indonesia.
The scientific diversity of the participants corresponds with the
materials should be normalize and standardized in the
matriculation class before the training course begin. To make
the various specialization become a synergy need some
conditions to be examined and done before participate in the
The balance between theory and practical work in the training
can make more successfully participation.
