Due to the worldwide outbreak of the Coronavirus and the subsequent disruption of normal life, we have decided to change the upcoming Tygron EDU Event to an online webinar, open to everyone!
Broadcast has ended
Date: Thursday April 9, 2020
Time: 13:00 – 15:00
Location: Anywhere you like! (as long you got access to the internet)
The theme of the upcoming edition is Share & Inspire
The EDU Event is Tygron’s longest running event thanks to our strong and active community. One of the important lessons of last year’s EDU Event (read about it here -Dutch) is that schools like to share their experiences of working with the Tygron Platform and learn from each other. More schools are starting to integrate our software in the curriculum and the need for workable examples has grown exponentially.
That’s why we are bringing some of the best student practices to the forefront this year. For instance calculating water stress and strategic planning of climate proof cities and more. But also the Tygron Student Contest where over 210 students from 48 countries participated to win 1500 Euros!
The program has been slightly adjusted for your online viewing pleasure and looks like this:
13:00-13:10 Welcome and introduction by Tygron (Hedi van Dijk)
13:10-13:40 Maxim Knepflé, Godelief Abilakh Missier, GIS-specialist: GIS and Geodesign: Importing REVIT models, Using ESRI and QGis, WFS connection, Q&A
