We asked some people who attended the conference to tell us about their
minds on the GIS topic.
"GIS are very interesting. It allows a precision which can prove very interesting
in our future jobs. During an interview for a training-period, I was asked
if I knew about GIS : I just had to say 'no!'. It becomes necessary that
students, in our domain, be taught GIS".
Anne Blondel, 3rd year student in Water Science Engineering:
"I was quite impressed by this conference. I think that GIS softwares must
be included in our formation. The accuracy in data analysis is outstanding.
However, I was slightly disappointed by the fact that it is very difficult
and expensive to obtain datasets with the precision required for hydrology
calculations. The future development of data collecting technics should
be taught at the ENSEEIHT."
Xavier Perrot, 3rd year student in Water Science Engineering:
"Throughout this conference, we understood above all how important it is
for us to know how to use GIS softwares. I definitely think that these
softwares have to be ones of our best-known, as Telemac or Fluent."
Julien Neveu, 3rd year student in Water Science Engineering:
"Quite good conference. Pretty clear. GIS softwares look a necessary tool
for nowadays engineers in hydrology. We are looking forward to be taught
the basic use of Grass5."
