At the annual seminar of the Munich 'Round Table GIS', MSc and PhD Geoinformatics thesis authors from German, Swiss and Austrian Universities compete for the top thesis award. Today, Christian Hürzeler received the price for 1st place for his thesis titled "Der Preis der Aussicht. Einsatz von 3D-Stadtmodellen und 3D-Sichtbarkeitsanalysen in einem hedonischen Mietpreismodell" (roughly translated, 'Real estate prices and a room with a view. Analyses based on 3D city models and viewsheds in a hedonic model for apartment rental cost.').

Mr Hürzeler is working at the planning office of the City of Zurich, and completed his UNIGIS MSc at the University of Salzburg in the first half of 2012. The full text thesis is available from the UNIGIS Library.

Congratulations to this success reaching well beyond 'just' completing the UNIGIS MSc!
