UP students win Esri award
Esri South Africa, one of our sponsors of our recent biennial conference, made funds available for a student with the best use of GIS and geospatial analyses in their work presented at our conference. A count of the judges' vote showed that this award was shared between Maleho Sadiki, and Honorus student, and Jason le Roux, a Masters student. Both are from the University of Pretoria. Jason developed a wetland map for Eswatini (formerly Swaziland) using a combined field work and digital approach. Maleho has mapped water bodies on Marion Island using remote sensing and GIS methods. We congratulate both students on their achievement.
