Irene Fellner receives UNIGIS Academic Excellence Prize @AGIT conference

When was the last time, when you lost your indoor orientation in an underground carpark or a large building? Whereas there are a lots of devices and apps that help us in the outdoor navigation, there is little digital support for wayfinding within buildings. Irene Fellners Master Thesis closes this gap: she developed algorithms that automatically identify indoor landmarks from building databases and calculates routes that are based on these landmarks.

Irene Fellner was awarded the UNIGIS Academic Excellece Award after she presented her research in the Special Session on 'Spatial Perspectives on Active Mobility' at the AGIT / GI_Forum conference. We want to congratulate Irene heartly for this achievement!
