GIS by women: UNIGIS Day Switzerland

This year's UNIGIS Switzerland Day at the 'University of Applied Sciences Rapperswil' (HSR) viewed GISc from a gender perspective. Exclusively female speakers gave an impressive overview on the firm establishment of GIS in public authorities, consultancies, research and education. Apart from innovative applications, many presentations focused on the current challenge of crafting spatial data infrastructures for the management and the public provision of spatial data.
As a highlight of the event, Timo Reissner received his Diploma for successful completion of  his UNIGIS MSc study, with a Master Thesis on a fragmentation analysis in the Swiss Kanton Aargau (Foto: Gudrun Wallentin - UNIGIS MSc Director of Studies, Timo Reissner - UNIGIS MSc Alumnus). Congratulations Timo Reissner!
