Background: Originally a landscape planner and architect, Sandra came across GIS and Remote Sensing while working on her thesis in Mozambique for the GIZ and got hooked on it ever since. After completing a Master's Degree in GIS & Remote Sensing she had a short stint mapping powerline transmission routes for the private sector before she returned to the humanitarian field and joined CartONG in 2007 just after its creation. Her first long mission to Uganda convinced her to stay.
