Award from Ordnance Survey
Paul Hurst, who took our MSc IS programme last year took part in the Ordnance Survey (OS) sponsored dissertation programme (Paul was supervised by Dr Paul Clough). Following completion and assessment of his dissertation by OS, he was awarded the full £700 sponsorship. For the first time this year, OS also decided to award a prize to the university department of the top student on the programme. In recognition of the outstanding quality of Paul's dissertation, this prize has been awarded to the iSchool and will be used to improve learning and teaching related to Geographic Information Systems and Geiographic Information Retrieval.
