GIS-Helpdesk for students of the Georg-August-University Göttingen

Since 2008, the Department of Geography of the University of Göttingen operates a helpdesk which is funded by the state of Lower Saxony. This helpdesk is a counseling center for students of all disciplines who are engaged in the acquisition, management, presentation and analysis of spatial data in Geographic Information Systems (GIS).

The GIS-helpdesk supports the students both in researching of spatial data for certain applications and research areas as well as in the processing and analysis of data and all questions and problems around the use of GIS software in general. Moreover, the supervision of Bachelor- and Master-theses is possible.

Concerning field work for theses, it is possible to borrow GPS-devices free of charge.
