30 Jul 2020
Tirza van Daalen, Director of the Geological Survey of the Netherlands on this success: "It’s fantastic that these visualizations show the importance of the subsurface and the BRO for society so wonderfully. I would like to thank the TNO-GDN and Esri Netherlands team for convincing Ed van Ingen and myself of the importance of 'Voxels' in Esri software six years ago. It is because of this that we started a joint research project which now creates amongst others possibility to produce these visualizations. As said the BRO is itself is important, the use of the BRO even more.”
The prize was awarded within the framework of the Esri User Conference 2020, with the latest storymap of Amsterdam AmstelStad being submitted as an example. You win prizes together. That is why this prize is for all the partners who cooperate on the BRO. Every year, a number of large Esri conferences are organised at which colleagues from all over the world show the latest developments in the field of GIS applications from various fields. Every year, prizes are also awarded for the best GIS maps. There are various categories for this 'Map Gallery', such as educational maps, student maps, research maps and 3D maps. The BRO won first prize in the category 3D maps.
