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:

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.
