GDi and Esri actively participated at the event, making available the latest ArcGIS technology, providing mentorship and ‘ArcGIS for Personal Use’ as prizes in the Hackathon.

Using the ArcGIS Platform, a successful conclusion to the competition was reached and saw 6 teams with a total of 29 team members declared winners in their respective categories.

The winners for best work using the ArcGIS platform went to teams:

Professional category

The Copernicus Hackathon Zagreb Award for ‘Best Work, participating in the Copernicus Accelerator’ and awarded by the European Commission, was won by the CROGIS team for the “Green Island project.”  Second place was awarded to the Coprnicus team for the project “GeoTwins”.

This truly was a great event to promote the many capabilities of the ArcGIS Platform across many thematic areas. All users were enthusiastic with great ideas of what they can achieve next using imagery in the ArcGIS Platform.

Congratulations to all the participants and winners for their hard and dedicated work!
