Bridgit Hebner - Junior GIS Specialist
Hi! My name is Bridgit Hebner and I started work as a Junior GIS Specialist at the Geodienst in August 2023. I am from the United States and currently study the Environmental and Infrastructure Planning master program at the Faculty of Spatial Sciences. It is always fun for me to figure out all of the different ways to get to a goal in GIS. With so many possibilities, there is always a new and interesting analysis to do with a dataset!

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!

Lilia Boyadzhieva - Junior GIS Specialist
Hello! My name is Lilia Boyadzhieva, and I’ve been a Junior GIS Specialist at the Geodienst since September 2023. I come from Bulgaria and currently study Real Estate Studies at the Faculty of Spatial Sciences. As a visual learner myself, I am passionate about visualisation and making visually pleasing maps. In the last few years, I’ve also grown fond of data analysis, so the Geodienst is the perfect place to explore it further.
