Diploma 3 of Remote Sensing and Geographical Information System established in 1999 referring to SK DIKTI No. 358/DIKTI/Kep/1998 and expected to graduate high quality human resources for industry and/or assisting mapping-surveying workers. This study program focusing in teaching technical mastery at 3 of 5 mapping and surveying, such as remote sensing, geographical information system, and cartography.Meanwhile, the 2 others (Photogrammetry and Land Surveying) are taught properly as well as the use of Global Positioning System (GPS).
Remote sensing is a branch of knowledge focusing on collecting information about particular object or phenomenon on earth without direct contact. To collect the information, a sensor should be instaled on aeroplane, space shuttle, or unmanned satelite. The sensor can be a photographic camera, antenna, or multispectral/hyperspectral scanner. The sensor would produce images to be analyzed as map.
Geographical Information System is a computer based system to collect, manage, analyze, and model, as well as to create the whole spatial information referring to precise locations on earth surface. GIS processes map by assistance of computer. Remote sensing and GIS is highly demanded in city/area planning, natural resources management especially on forestry, mines, marine, natural disaster mitigation, and communication system.
