Jennifer Roelens

Jennifer Roelens is PhD student in bio engineering at the University of Leuven (KU Leuven), Belgium. Her main research interest is remote sensing, particularly LiDAR, and all its applications. Currently during her PhD, she is applying this knowledge to extract ditches and their characterises which can be a breakthrough for facilitating hydrological modelling.

New ECS representative!

At the EGU ESSI division meeting, Christoph Stasch was elected as the new representative of the early career scientists in the ESSI division following Jennifer Roelens. Christoph works as research associate and consultant at 52°North, a non-profit research organisation in the field of applied geoinformatics. His focus is on simplifying the integration of sensors and processing modules (e.g. environmental simulation models) in spatial information infrastructures and GIS applications. As ESSI ECS representative, Christoph hopes to strengthen the network of ECS in the ESSI division. Interested in participating? Then get in touch with the network or Christoph directly.

Happy GISday!!

As many people within the ESSI division have at least once used GIS software, we would like to wish you a happy GIS day!

Every day, millions of decisions are being powered by Geographic Information Systems (GIS) for education, government, non-profit organizations and businesses. ESSI deals with community-driven and multidisciplinary challenges. GIS plays an important role to develop data-driven solutions that help many organizations visualize, analyze, interpret and present data.
