The prize carried an invitation to the GI_Forum Salzburg, where she published and presented her work in a well received talk in the main conference program, and received the 'trophy' and an award certificate. The winner says: "My dissertation demonstrates potential applications and techniques using Ordnance Survey’s 3D dataset. These could be further explored, expanded on a larger scale, and/or researched with respect to their potential business value. In this case, potential customers would include solar panel companies and installers, urban planners, householders and other decision-makers in the solar energy industry."
