Austria - UNIGIS MSc and professional certificate programmes are now offered in Central Asia through the UNIGIS (www.unigis.net) study centre at the Kyrgyz State University for Construction, Transportation and Architecture (KSUCTA) in Bishkek, Kyrgyz Republic.
Continuing and higher education in Geographic Information Science and Technologies and Geoinformatics methods is important for developing Spatial Data Infrastructures across nations and regions as a foundation for sustainable economies, societies and environments. Increasingly, enterprises, non-governmental organisations and public agencies apply Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to reach their objectives and to better serve their customers. "GIS" has become an attractive and rewarding career path for motivated and skilled professionals worldwide - with the UNIGIS academic network being the global leader in GIScience distance education.
This new UNIGIS study centre is integrated with the Austria - Central Asia Centre for GIScience (www.aca-giscience.org) and offers in-service distance education for professionals interested in GIS and Geoinformatics. Courses towards the MSc as well as certificate qualifications will be launched with an on-site workshop in September and lead students to international academic degrees / certificates awarded by the University of Salzburg, Austria.

The Symposium brought together GIS educators from most Latin American countries with support from the UNIGIS partners at SIGTE, Girona. The broad range of symposium presentations demonstrated a high level of interest in advancing GIS education throughout Latin America, and was followed by a day of hands-on workshops offering introductions into FOSS products like gvSIG, SAGA and Mapserver.
The 'GIS education week' at USFQ was then topped off with the introductory on-site workshop of the first group of 2008 UNIGIS students - we wish them a successful start into their distance program!

In a set of lectures, group work and practicals participants focus on using Geographic Information Systems and Spatial Analysis techniques to model spatial patterns of demand as well as regional potentials of solar-thermal and photovoltaic, wind, biomass and hydropower resources. In order to assess the current state of the art regarding the technologies of renewable energy generation for a sustainable development in Europe, the Summer School will provide an insight into leading edge developments in the field. Participants have the opportunity to attend sessions at the Geoinformatics Forum 2008 symposium dedicated to “Energy for the Future”.
Applications are accepted until May 15, 2008. Due to limited places we strongly recommend an early registration! For registration and further details please visit our Summer School website!
LBS are used to innovate business and safety but also to disclose original ideas in community services, urban planning or new media. Large companies such as Nokia or Google offer LBS solutions to their professional or consumer customers. Organisations such as BP or FedEx use location aware applications for safety and business efficiency.
The Summer School addresses foundations, technology and adoption issues in location-aware solutions. It includes user and business demands, case studies, technical architectures, RFID and non-traditional location technologies, as well as the ethical dimension of LBS together with implications for privacy and labour relations.
Applications are accepted until May 15, 2008. Due to limited places we strongly recommend an early registration! For registration and further details please visit our summer school website!

The 2008 intake for the German language UNIGIS MSc programme at Salzburg University started with a group of 57 new students. With very diverse academic and professional backgrounds, all share the common goal of achieving an advanced qualification in Geographic Information Science & Systems in order to stimulate their careers and to enhance their professional outlook.
Over an intense three day workshop from Jan 3-5, everybody got together to establish a solid foundation for communication throughout the two year distance learning course. Salzburg University is very proud to welcome such an ambitious class: "We are looking forward to supporting emerging future leaders and creative minds for the GIS industry!" said Michael Fally, UNIGIS MSc director of studies.
The Salzburg University UNIGIS distance learning programmes are offered internationally in German and English languages, with more than 1000 graduates it has evolved into an important foundation for building spatial information infrastructures in academia and across all application domains.
