NODE

Founded in 2015, NODE is a student association linked to the master program Geographical Information Management and Application, or GIMA in short. As this master is spread out over four Dutch universities (Delft, Enschede, Utrecht and Wageningen) and it attracts multiple foreign students, a link between all the students was needed. NODE is the direct result of this need. Our main goal is to bring the GIMA students together, both inside and outside of the contact weeks. To achieve this goal, activities are organized with either a focus on the informal or education.

ALBANIA TRIP

OxWe are very happy to share the group photo of our second and successful NODE trip! Last weekend we visited Tirana with a group of 25 enthusiastic GIMA students. We had a city tour through the interesting capital of Albania, visited a bunker museum and "climbed" a mountain during a mountain tour. Besides that we had dinners with a lot of traditional food and enjoyed the Albanian bars!

Thank you all for joining and thanks to Dewitec for contributing to the trip! We are already looking forward to next year :)


MASTERCLASS GOCONNECTIT

On April 25th, 2019, NODE will organize a Masterclass together with GOconnectIT. GOconnectIT helps the utilities industry move forward by making GEO information and knowledge available to everyone. This innovates the industry and reduces damage to cables and pipelines during excavation works. During the masterclass at their office in Nieuwegein, we will get the chance to put our GIS knowledge into practice by working on relevant cases. GOconnectIT will also give us more insight about GIS in their field of work by showing demo’s and discuss their vision on GIS. The day will start at 10:00 at the office in Nieuwegein. We will close the day off with drinks at 16:00. GOconnectIT will provide a lunch.

Places are limited, so be sure to sign up quickly: https://forms.gle/Tp8Bqx8tnHzV7wUF8
