We would like to present you another wonderful student project from this summer semester created within the class Thematic Cartography, a third semester bachelor class for Spatial Planning students. The map is called Khalid’s Way and was created by Jakob Listabarth. He describes his work in the following way:
This map tells the story of Khalid’s journey from Yemen to Austria. It shows merely one personal refugee-story out of the countless other ones, which we normally only hear about through statistics, in newspapers, or from television.
Jakob Listabarth studies Spatial Planning at the Technical University of Vienna. Before that, he studied Information Design where he focused, among other things, on how to present facts in a more user-friendly way by using shapes and colours. Jakob’s passion is using his knowledge from both disciplines in order to tell socially relevant stories in an engaging way.
Congratulations on your impressive work, Jakob!
Enjoy some of the lovely details in the following images or download the map as PDF (2MB).

At the 28th International Cartographic Conference in Washington, D.C., USA, our atlas project genderATlas für die Schule won the first jury prize in the category educational cartographic products. The jury stated:
“A very well thought through mini-atlas that explores gender issues for women and men. This version specifically aimed at school children to promote understanding of equality and support research initiatives.”
We are extremely happy about this award! The atlas, which is a sub-project of the regular genderATlas was funded by the Bundesministeriums für Bildung (BMB) in 2016 and developed by a team around Elisabeth Aufhauser and Christiane Hintermann from Universität Wien. The technical implementation was done by Manuela Schmidt based on the prototype by Florian Ledermann. A huge thank you to everyone involved!
