Geography in India

Book Description

Geography in India is the fifth ICSSR survey of research on the subject and discusses its priority research areas as identified by the Council, namely, physical geography, population and settlement geography, regional geography and regional planning, remote sensing and geographical information systems (GIS), and analytical techniques with special reference to quantitative techniques in geography. The chapters critically analyse past research as well as emergent fields of specialization, and suggest areas where further research can prove beneficial. In addition, the introduction and thematic discussions showcase the gradual shift from largely qualitative, regional studies to systematic and quantitative geography, and document the growing number of interdisciplinary studies with space as a common theme. The contributors have also taken note of the progress in geography overseas and the access to new technology for the development of analytical techniques in the field.
