Z_GIS 'Yearbook' published
At the beginning of each year, researchers at Z_GIS are looking back at their achievements throughout the previous year. The publication of our 'Annual Report' marks a milestone where we take stock (usually with some pleasant surprises caused by fellow researchers' activities we did not fully take notice of during the year), and use this as a baseline for planning next steps.
2011, by all measures, certainly was an outstanding year. Launching the GIScience doctoral college and flagship research projects like MS-MONINA, or successfully switching the 'Applied Geoinformatics' MSc to English language will all have long-lasting impacts. New leadership in several UNIGIS program areas will make a difference to our distance learning students, and all events ranging from GIS Day to AGIT / GI_Forum were received exceedingly well.
The new year of 2012 already promises to hold in stock even more changes and challenging developments, and everybody at Z_GIS is keen to stay on top of their game - contributing to leading the field of Geoinformatics and GIScience in its many facets, as a stimulating and innovation-rich interdisciplinary domain.
