  • Rick Roodbergen - Junior GIS Specialist
    Hi! I am Rick Roodbergen and I'm student-assistent at Geo Services since march 2022. I study Real Estate Studies at the Favulty of Spatial Sciences, where I mainly focus on the use of GIS techniques in real estate research. What I love about GIS is that with some good datasets, good analyses and new perspectives you can have completely new interesting insights.

    Hai! My name is Saskia Nauta and since April 2022 I have been working at the Geodienst as a Junior GIS specialist.

  • Elmeri Niemi - Junior GIS Specialist
    Hello! My name is Elmeri Niemi and I’ve been a Junior GIS Specialist at Geodienst since March 2021. I’m from Finland and currently a full time student at RUG, studying a research master in Spatial Sciences. Combining my curiosity towards the technical aspects of the field, working with GIS was a natural path. My strengths are in the use of open source GIS tools, such as QGIS and in text-based GIS using a variety of scripting/programming languages. Let's work together with your data to find the optimal uses for it!
