Founded in 2015, NODE is a student association linked to the master program Geographical Information Management and Application, or GIMA in short. As this master is spread out over four Dutch universities (Delft, Enschede, Utrecht and Wageningen) and it attracts multiple foreign students, a link between all the students was needed. NODE is the direct result of this need. Our main goal is to bring the GIMA students together, both inside and outside of the contact weeks. To achieve this goal, activities are organized with either a focus on the informal or education.



Explore your future work field with a sporty practical case!

On May 24th, 2019, NODE will organize a business course together with Tensing GIS Consulting, at their offices in Waardenburg. During this day we will deal with a challenging case in groups of 3 a 4 students. At Tensing they like working with the data-integration platform FME. With this hands-on workshop they would like to give you a kickstart in the use of FME by showing how the software can be used at big sport events; the start of the Tour de France in Utrecht in 2015. This is a unique opportunity to see how our GIMA knowledge can be applied in practice! Besides the cases, we will have a delicious lunch together and there is room for 'meet the consultant' where we can get an impression of the various activities that the Tensing consultants carry out. The day will start 

The day will start at 09:30 at the offices in Waardenburg. We will close the day off with a table football competition and drinks at 15:00. As the office is not greatly accessible by public transport, we are discussing some other transport options. More information on that will follow.

Places are limited, so be sure to sign up quickly:


During the masterclass atGOconnectIT last thursday we learned how the company uses GIS for managing geo information for cables and pipelines. We even got to drive around in a 3D scanning car! Thank you for the interesting day!


We are very happy to share the group photo of our second and successful NODE trip! Last weekend we visited Tirana with a group of 25 enthusiastic GIMA students. We had a city tour through the interesting capital of Albania, visited a bunker museum and "climbed" a mountain during a mountain tour. Besides that we had dinners with a lot of traditional food and enjoyed the Albanian bars!

Thank you all for joining and thanks to Dewitec for contributing to the trip! We are already looking forward to next year :)


During the alumni event on wednesday seven alumni told current GIMA students everything about writing your thesis, doing an internship and finding a job. Thank you Joe d'Hont, Sjors Hoek, Stijn van der Hoek, Ruben van der Valk, Cynthia de Vos and Elisa van Bergen for sharing your interesting experiences!



On Wednesday the 27th of March a Missing Maps Mapathon took place in Wageningen! This event was organized together with the Red Cross and Nieuwland Geo-Information. Vulnerable areas in Mozambique that have been affected by cyclone Idai were mapped. Thank you everyone who helped during the event!
