As an internationally recognized technology company, GDi wants to share its resources and experience with the community. Thus, since spring 2021, we gave teachers and students in Croatian high schools an opportunity to learn with ‘cloud’ geoinformation technologies and Esri ArcGIS platform. This initiative is a continuation of long-term GDi activities within the ‘GDi for STE(A)M’ programme. Through it, we provide students with knowledge, data and technologies with which they will, we hope, create a better future for all of us.”, said Boran Lončarić, president and CEO of GDi Group.
