Dear List,


We welcome the Professorship of Geoinformation Systems as a new Associate


The Professorship of Geoinformation Systems is an interdisciplinary
institution at the Department of Geosciences of the Technische Universität
Dresden. Prof. Dr. Lars Bernard and his team focus on various R&D topics
within Geoinformation Science. The current scientific activities target the
design, development and establishment of geoinformation services for
spatio-temporal modeling.


The development of GI software as a proof of concept is vital to the
research activities. The research group has been cooperating with 52°North
for several years, both contributing to the collaborative software
development process, as well as building on concepts and software from other
contributors. 52°North serves as a platform for the organization of
collaboration between partners - researchers, industry and end users - and
disseminates results to a broad user community. Prof. Lars Bernard: “A
strong belief in the underlying vision & idea of 52°North, its strong
linkages to GI Science and the open and cooperative atmosphere we have
experienced with 52°North led us to the logical decision to become a
52°North partner and thus strengthen our collaboration.”


Best regards,

Ann Hitchcock
