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.
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.
