About Us

IIT Tirupati Navavishkar (NAV) I-Hub Foundation (ITTNiF) - Google Earth Engine (NAV-i-GEE) Research Program is for Indian university students & researchers to get a chance to work with leading research organizations in the country working in disaster management, agriculture, environment, mining, forest fires, conservation, water resources, image processing, and geo-spatial app development and other related domains over 6 months of a project and get paid to do so!

If selected for the program, you will work on a project using Google Earth Engine under the mentorship of a dedicated mentor at the parent/participating research organization. You will also be given a certificate of recognition for participating in the NAV-i-GEE program and special IITTNiF-Earth Engine goodies.

This program is based on the Google Summer of Earth Engine.

The selected students will be expected to submit a poster paper at the end of the research term and will be invited to present their work at a Google Summit.

Our Vision

The vision behind this program is to provide students with an "impact-filled" engagement and give them exposure to working on real-world research problems dealing with RS/GIS data. We also want to give back to our non-profit partners and support them in their projects by providing them access to some of the brightest student minds in the country along with access to Google Tech & Support and IITTNiF funding for the project in the form of a stipend to the student.


IIT Tirupati Navavishkar I-Hub Foundation (IITTNiF), a not-for-profit Section-8 company, is set up to host the Technology Innovation Hub (TIH) in Positioning and Precision Technologies (PPT).
Positioning and Precision Technologies (PPTs) are indispensable tools for monitoring, integrating, and analysing spatially and temporally distributed resources to aid in effective decision-making across multiple domains. These technologies include remote sensing (non-invasive), Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and Global Positioning Systems (GPS). The Technology Innovation Hub (TIH) primarily focus on Public Private Partnership (PPP) model to generate revenue through: (i) Research and development sponsorship from industries, government and start-ups in form of innovative products and services in PPT; (ii) linkage with industries, accelerators and Venture Capital to create funding ecosystem; (iii) training and consulting; (iv) standards development and policy creation for rapid adaptation of PPT across various stakeholders; and (iv) databank creation across strategic areas of PPT.
