This week on 29 November, it was announced that our team member Nina Krašovec received Nahtigal Award from the Faculty of Arts of the University of Ljubljana (UL) for her master’s thesis “Detection of standing dead trees using leaf-on and leaf-off UAV-borne laser scanning point cloud data in mixed forests”. The research was conducted under the supervision of Assist. Prof. Dr. Blaž Repe (UL) in collaboration with the 3DGeo group and co-supervision of Prof. Dr. Bernhard Höfle.
The committee of the Department of Geography acknowledged her outstanding research and nominated her for the award. The Faculty received 30 theses from the departments. The committee thoroughly reviewed all the submitted works, evaluations from the supervisors and justifications from the departmental committees and selected four recipients of the Nahtigal Award. All four were also nominated for the prestigious Prešeren Prize for Students of the University of Ljubljana (one of whom received it).
The Nahtigal award is in memoriam of Rajko Nahtigal, a Slovenian Slavicist, philologist, academic and pedagogue. He was the first dean of the Faculty of Arts as well as the first president of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts.
We want to congratulate also the other awardees for their outstanding work.
