This year the UNIGIS International Association established the “Geospatial Events Grant” (GEG), to connect active UNIGIS students with the international geospatial community and enhance the learning experience beyond lessons and exercises.
We are now pleased to announce the grantees within the second Call of this Grant! Two UNIGIS students have been awarded a grant for participating in a leading Geospatial event and presenting their work to a broad audience:
- Oscar Londoño, Master student at UNIGIS AmericaLatina, receives a grant for attending the Esri Health and Human Services GIS Conference 2018. Mr. Londoño is a medical epidemiologist from Cali, Colombia and will present his Master thesis: ‘Identification of spatial distribution patterns of Aedes Aegypti breeding grounds in Cali-Colombia using GIS’.
- Jafar Niyazov, recently graduated student from UNIGIS Bishkek. Mr. Niyazov is working at the Institute of Water Problems, Hydropower and Ecology, National Academy of Science of Tajikistan and will present a paper / poster on ‘Monitoring and Mapping Zarafshan Glacier using Remote Sensing’ at the GI_Forum 2018 in Salzburg, Austria.
Congratulations on behalf of the UNIGIS International Association Board!
