Congratulations to Jakob Listabarth who successfully finished his Bachelor thesis today! His topic focused on a cartographic storytelling approach for the Sustainable Development Goal 6 “Ensure availability and sustainability of water and sanitation for all”.
He created a folder with some background information as well as 6 storymaps addressing school children. Some screenshots of his impressive work can be found here:
On June 16, students of the International Master of Cartography were invited on a hike to Hermannskogel. The hill is not only the highest peak of Vienna but also a geodetic fundamental point. The small exhibition at Habsburgwarte gave some insights into its history as the kilometre zero of cartographic measurements in Austria-Hungary.
The Research Group Cartography is currently hosting a meeting of representatives of all partner universities of the International Cartography Master program. We are happy to welcome program coordinator Juliane Cron from Technische Universität München, Liqiu Meng from Technische Universität München, Nikolas Prechtel from TU Dresden, and Corné van Elzakker from ITC – University of Twente.
We are happy to welcome 24 students of the International Master in Cartography at TU Vienna for the summer semester 2018. This intake’s students come from 20 countries: Argentina, Bangladesh, China, Ecuador, Egypt, Germany, Ghana, Greece, Kenia, Kzakhstan, Lebanon, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, Poland, Serbia, Spain, Taiwan, Turkey and the USA.
After finishing their first semester at TU München, the students are now with us for their second semester, before they move to TU Dresden. We are really happy to have them here and wish them a fun & successful semester!
We are one of the four partner universities offering the Erasmus Mundus Master of Science programme in Cartography. The application for the 2018 intake (program start: October 1) is open from January 1 to May 31, 2018.
Die Exekutivagentur Bildung, Audiovisuelles und Kultur der Europäischen Kommission (EACEA) fördert durch ihr Programm Erasmus+ Studierenden-Mobilität im Rahmen von Joint Master Degrees. Das an der TU Wien eingerichtete Masterstudium Kartographie konnte bereits in der Förderrunde 2014 diese begehrte Förderung für drei Jahre erringen. Es ist umso erfreulicher, dass dies in der aktuellen Runde erneut gelungen ist und die Kartographie unter den 38 erfolgreichen Programmen ist (bei 116 Anträgen). Das frei.haus der TU Wien berichtet dazu.
