GIVA goes Berne
At the end of May, GIVA organised a field trip with 25 students from the Bachelor and Master curriculum to Berne. In the morning, we learned how swisstopo collects topographic data and how the maps are produced and printed. Later we had the chance to explore modern geovisualisation tools.
In the afternoon, we visited BERNMOBIL, the public transport company of Berne. What looks like the women’s strike is the beginning of a guided tour through the modern vehicle fleet of trams and buses. A presentation of asset management, maintenance and construction planning followed the round tour. An insightful day for all!
