  • 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.

  • Saskia Nauta - Junior GIS Specialist
    Hai! My name is Saskia Nauta and since April 2022 I have been working at the Geodienst as a Junior GIS specialist. Besides this I have started my master Society, Sustainability and Planning at the Faculty of Spatial Sciences. I get a lot of joy from figuring out together what it is you want to do exactly with you GIS research and showing you that it does not have to be difficult!

  • 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!
