GIS qualifications:

At DTU Aqua, my primary GIS platform is ArcGIS, initially in version 8.x and now in version 10.x. The extensions I am working with are primarily Spatial Analyst, 3D Analyst, Geostatistical Analyst, Image Analysis and Tracking Analyst. Besides that, I am responsible for the ArcIMS server, where there are several ArcIMS applications running. The page provides access to these applications. In addition, a short introduction to some of the projects that I have been working with at DTU Aqua over the last years can be found on this page. (in Danish only). Regarding Remote Sensing, I have a good knowledge to Chips for Windows and ERDAS Imagine. I have worked with ENVI and BEAM. I have completed the courses Remote Sensing 1 and 2 at the Institute of Geography at Copenhagen University.

My knowledge of other Geographical Information System Software includes MapInfo, Idrisi, GRASS and Osumap. Other GIS related software that I have been working with includes EVS-PRO and Voxler, both programs that are used for 3d visualization of geographical data. 

Other IT qualifications:

I master both different software for word-processing, spreadsheet and image editing at an advanced user level. I have good experience with different database software, including Access, MS SQL Server and ESRI’s SDE for databases. Furthermore, I have been working with XML, XSL, HTML and MS Visual Basic.
