>Dr. David Comas (Chief executive Officer, NEXUS GEOGRAPHICS ): What does a GIS professional need to work in the geolocation sector?
This u_Lecture will be held in Spanish language!
Currently, companies in the GIS sector still need professionals and young talents to create new applications and to take advantage of the interesting innovations in geolocation technology that we are experiencing.
What key skills should these professionals have? Dr. David Comas will try to answer this question in his webinar, based on his experience accumulated over two decades that have been very intense in every way. In the beginning of NEXUS, most of the team were “GIS analysts” and a minority were “GIS developers”. Currently, this proportion has been reversed.
The geolocation market is more open than ever, with exciting opportunities at a professional level. It is a very important issue for the specialists who are being trained and also for the companies. In the webinar, Dr. Comas will propose to open a direct debate, based on concrete facts, practical and useful.
Bio: Dr. David Comas, Consejero Delegado, NEXUS GEOGRAPHICS. David was obtaining his degree in Geography at the University of Girona. With extensive experience applying maps to improve the functioning of companies and administrations, he has lead more than 300 Geolocation and Geographic Information Systems projects.
