Review GIS lecture

The evening of January 23rd was in the theme of GIS for the members of Pyrus. The LexCie organised an evening with two talks on GIS. The lectures held in H41 were visited by a lot of members enjoying some drinks and two very interesting talks! The first lecture was on working with GIS. Our guest speaker Stefan Arts (an alumni from GIS) told us how he works in practice with GIS and what he does for Witteveen & Bos. The second lecture by Lammert Kooistra was on remote sensing and how to use it for a range of applications. He told us how remote sensing will be used in the future in his very enthusiastic talk. Shortly, it was a very interesting evening and we think everybody learned a lot of things about how GIS is used in research and consultancy. ?
