Career Opportunities in Geoinformatics in India

Nowadays Government wants to make cities smart in the path of Modi. But do you know how much Geo-spatial technology will contribute to making your smart city? Every area ranging from urban administration and unmanned aerial vehicle technology to missile, e-governance and even advertising and marketing today depend on Geo-spatial data. Most of the countries in the world have started specializing in Geographical Information System (GIS) after understanding its future impact. It is a key emerging and evolving industry in the 21st century that offers an excellent career avenue with immense potential and many as-yet undiscovered opportunities like in spatial data visualization, spatial Intelligence, augmented reality in Geo-space and conservation of the earth data.

Install and Run Spotify from Google Play in India [No VPN, No Root , No APK]

I love music that is why I need to have original updated Spotify on my One plus One android Phone. But like others, I can not get it in my google play store in India. I tried various option available online like download APK, use VPN or crack version which were insecure. Moreover after some time it was outdated due to update in the Spotify Application in google play. I could not download APK again and again which is frustrating.

Spotify

At last I got an Idea and tried to apply as follows –

  1. Asked my US or Canada friend to make a google account for me from his city with his address (Pin code) and Phone number.
  2. Asked username and password then signed in to google account through it in my android phone
  3. Open play store and switched google account there with the new one.
  4. Now I can see all android apps are in the dollar and not Rupee.
  5. After that downloaded the application through this account.

Edit – But you will need VPN for first time Login as Spotify has updated its application like that.

Thanks a lot for reading this small blog. Comment here or ping me, If you find any difficulty and want to know applications which are useful and not available in India but only in US.

If you want to know other tricks and applications of android or other tech stuff feel free to subscribe my blog 🙂 Have a great day 😀

Europe Diaries – I love Amsterdam

As described in my previous blog, we all were ready to go for our first trip outside Germany. We were busy looking up things, making notes of what we could do or see. So the things which were required for the small weekend trip are shown below –

Europe Diaries – Starting of Unforgettable Memories

In this series, I will describe my journey around Europe while pursuing my internship at Leibniz University of Hanover, Germany. After my Intern in Goa, I always wanted to experience the life outside India and mostly in a developed country. For getting this Internship, I had to mail various institutes related to my specialization – Geo-Informatics. I got this great opportunity when I was selected for the research internship in Institute of Cartography and Geo-informatics.

So now I had to arrange for my accommodation. By checking various websites and resources I came to know other few Indian students going to the same university, so we finalized the accommodation with a German landlord lady.

Now came the hard time as we had to pack our bags and also consider things that would help us if we know about them in advance. Firstly, I came to know that only 2-pin plugs can fit the power sockets in Germany so we had to buy the travel adapter. Secondly, I had to download various phone apps which would be useful there which I will describe in my new blog later. Lastly, as Hanover has shower so had to buy the umbrella too. With that basic things were all packed to leave for the airport on 10 May 2015. My flight was at 4:00 AM.

Geospatial Industries in 21st Century

In this blog, I will describe the work of various Spatial Industries in the 21st century, which have the idea to harness the power of Spatially data for map entire world around us. If you want to know what that power is then read my previous article.

The Spatial Industries before 21st century has been a  niche one but things are certainly changing after Google’s entry in the mapping industry back in 2005 with Google Maps which was an indication of the power of spatial use. Also according to the US Department of Labor, Geospatial technologies, along with Nanotechnology and Biotechnology, are three most important high-growth industries for the 21st century.

Be it Self-driving cars or UAVs or Wearables or Virtual Reality or Citizen Sensors that were showcased as the powerful 21st century products after computer and mobile, they all have a spatial connection enabling the next generation of informatics. That means maps, which are the representation of spatial connection, are essential for almost any kind of hardware today.
