"Nachwuchsförderpreis GI" to Jan Kinne for his master thesis
Ass.Prof. Bernd Resch, Z_GIS, supervised the thesis on “The Geographic Dispersal of the German Software Industry – Geospatial Analysis and Location Pattern Modeling”.
The objective of the thesis carried out at Heidelberg University was to analyse the geographic dispersal of software companies in Germany. Jan Kinne identified location determinants and developed a model predicting the local occurrence of software companies within each square kilometer of Germany. He showed that the relationship between the number of software companies and the predicting location factors can be adequately estimated.
