Jana started with Interpret as a student intern in early 2014, before becoming a permanent staff member in April of that year.  Jana is a graduate of the University of Ostrava in the Czech Republic, where she graduated with a Masters of Science in Physical Geography. This adds to the multi-cultural mix we have in the Interpret team. Jana’s experience includes georeferencing and managing historical aerial imagery for ECAN, generating high resolution contours, carrying out accessibility modelling, publishing and editing web based maps and developing an automatic mapping solution using python. Jana is responsible for looking after all things Esri GIS at Solid Energy. In addition she has recently developed an app for Fulton Hogan, allowing their staff to access mapping and GIS functions offsite and offline.  This innovative work was recently acknowledged with the ‘Excellence in GIS’ award at the 2015 NZ Esri User Group Conference. Jana loves travel and has backpacked extensively throughout New Zealand and the world.
