The Department of Geoinformatics – Z_GIS concluded a week-long international capacity building workshop on ‘GIScience for Civil Protection Management in Southeast Asia (civil-GIS)’ at the University of Transport and Communications (UTC), Hanoi, Vietnam. The workshop was organised jointly by Z_GIS and the Faculty of Civil Engineering (FCE), UTC from 5th to 9th October, 2015 followed by a field excursion on 10th October. The civil-GIS project was co-funded by ASEA Uninet, Austria.

Dr. Shahnawaz (Z_GIS) and Dr. Thi Lan Huong HO (Vice Dean, FCE) conducted the workshop at UTC. Prof. Dac Su Tran (Rector, UTC) and Prof. Ha Phi THAI (Director International Relations, UTC) inaugurated the workshop. The logistical organisation of the workshop was intensively supported by Mr. Khanh Giang LE and International Relations Office of UTC.

Focusing on interdisciplinary faculty development, 30 teachers and postgraduate students from 9 universities in 5 countries (i.e. Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam) participated in the workshop. The participants worked on individual projects covering a range of aspects related to civil-protection in Southeast Asia using ArcGIS Desktop and ENVI software, and presented the outcomes in the concluding session.
