Keeping up with rapid changes
Any organisation providing and/or using geoinformation – for example, survey and mapping agencies, land registries (cadastre), government agencies (e.g. municipalities), and planning and resource management organisations (e.g. water boards) – needs highly educated professionals that are able to deal with the drastic changes in their operating environment, such as the rapid developments in geo-IC technology and architecture, increased competition, and government policies on cost-recovery,decentralisation, and the empowerment of users and clients.
To accommodate the rapidly changing demand for capacity building and institutional strengthening, ITC offers a flexible package of training and project services tailored to the needs of its clientele in terms of content, duration and location.
