For today’s episode we talk with Martin Jüssi, Director Consulting Services - Space and Earth Observation from CGI here in Tartu. Martin graduated at the Department of Geography here in Tartu with an MSc in GIS & Cartography and an MSc degree from the International Space University and entered the software development pathway. He is active in the local and global geospatial and space sectors and a regular mentor at Space and Earth Observation hackathons.
"When I found out that there is a curriculum where you can learn digital mapping, I knew what I wanted to study." Martin Jüssi
