We are happy to welcome 21 students from all over the world at TU Vienna for the summer semester 2016. Countries of origin include China, Bosnia and Herzigowina, UK, Iran, Turkey, Bangladesh, Egypt, Kuwait, USA, Brazil, Ukraine, Poland and Namibia!
After finishing their first semester at TU München, the students are now here with us for their second semester, before proceeding to TU Dresden. We wish them a fun and successful semester!
On December 16, Francisco Daniel Porras Bernárdez, student of the International Master of Cartography (3rd intake), presented his master thesis on the topic of “Extraction of user’s stays from GPS logs: A comparison of three spatio-temporal clustering approaches”. His presentation is accessible online here.
The fourth intake of the International Master Programme on Cartography has finished the “Vienna Semester” and is now heading to TU Dresden for the third semester. We organized a farewell session to review the semester and to showcase results of their hard work in this semester.
Unfortunately, Corné van Elzakker from ITC Enschede, who was as an external supervisor for Jan’s thesis could not attend the presentation. We would like to thank him for his excellent support and are looking forward to future cooperation!
This means that the International Master in Cartography will be supported by the European Union’s Erasmus+ programme, allowing also the University of Twente to join in. The 5 year grant will help to support a preparatory year (starting in October 2014), followed by three student intakes (2015, 2016, 2017).
The evaluation pointed out the excellence of the exisiting teams in Munich, Vienna and Dresden as well as the professional structure and cooperation. It was also highlighted that the “unique selling point” in offering a Master Programme in Cartography is seen as a most successful strategy.
