Together with our students of the International Master of Cartography, we visited the Otto Neurath exhibition “Sprechende Zeichen“ at the Wirtschaftsmuseum in Vienna. The exhibition is dedicated to Otto Neurath, founder of the Society and Economic Museum. Otto Neurath developed new graphics techniques during the First World War. He was a member of the philosophical Wiener Kreis and developed the Viennese method of image statisticsto present statistics in an easily understandable, visual form.
Thanks to Alenka Poplin and her students from Iowa State University for visiting our Research Division during spring break! Together with our students from the International Cartography Master program, they were introduced to the research field of emotion mapping and jointly conducted interviews in which they explored how Vienna is perceived by its inhabitants and where people find restorative places in the city.
On March 29, students of the International Master of Cartography went on a hike to Hermannskogel. The hill is the highest peak of Vienna and 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.
We are happy to welcome 30 students of the International Master in Cartography at TU Vienna for the summer semester 2019.

This year we are proud and happy to welcome 30 students from 19 different countries to the International Cartography Master program! The program’s first semester started with a welcoming week in Munich. A week full of activities and opportunities to meet & greet new students, alumni from previous intakes, and members from all four partner universities: TU München, TU Wien, TU Dresden, and UTwente.
We wish all students a great and successful time in Munich and we look forward to welcoming the students this summer term in Vienna!
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:
