A true journey of discovery

On 22 March, Esri Belux organized a STUDENT DAY in collaboration with Digitaal Vlaanderen.
This event took place in the VAC building in Ghent, right next to the Gent-Sint-Pieters railway station.
The day was filled with diverse GIS inspiration from different domains.
Workshops, guest speakers and interesting customer cases, among other things.

The target audience

This event was for all academics: teachers, researchers and students.
We where not only addressing regular GIS users, but also disciplines where GIS is starting to see the light.
In addition to geography, this includes topography, engineering, economics, marketing or history, for example.
