AGI Student of the Year Success

Peter Schmiz, a recent graduate from the M.Sc. in GIS at the University of Edinburgh, has received a “highly commended” in the Student of the Year awards run by the Association for Geographic Information. GIS students across the United Kingdom are eligible for this competition. Peter’s award was for his Master’s dissertation, entitled “The Effectiveness of OpenLayers within a Map Mashup: A Case Study for the Gazetteer for Scotland“.  Peter’s work is already live on thousands of entries within the Gazetteer for Scotland, making a diverse range of historical and contemporary maps to users.  GIS Programmes Director Bruce Gittings commented “I am really pleased to see Peter’s hard work recognised in this national competition, on top of earning his Masters degree with distinction. This is a great result for Edinburgh.”
