...practice what you learned during your education?
Emil Roman is a student at the Master´s programme in Geomatics. He chose to take a short break in his studies in order to gain more knowledge and practical skills. Emil works at Visimind AB, a company located in Stockholm that focuses on Mobile Mapping Technology, automated measurement methods and systems based on GIS and digital images.
- My job here at Visimind AB involves the elaboration of LIDAR data, from Laser Scanners, in the form of classification and digitalization in order to create 3D maps. The maps I help create are mainly for infrastructure, such as roads, houses or power lines. In the digitalization process we use 3D point clouds and we geo-reference maps, 2D plans and technical drawings. It’s amazing to see how accurate these are, even though some of them were drawn, by hand, more than 50 years ago.
- It feels really good to be part of this because many people will benefit from using these databases later.
Emil has been working at Visimind AB during the spring and this fall he will continue his studies in Geomatics. Does this sound appealing? The company manager welcomes other students that are interested in internships, traineeships or even jobs, and ask them to send an email to: email@example.com.
