Tamas Hajdu

GIS and Web Map Developer

Personal Profile

I am a certified cartographer with a strong interest towards GIS and Web Mapping, which grew out to be my profession. My passion for maps comes from as early as my childhood, when I was fascinated by the colors and complexity of highway- and geographic maps. These days, I am working and playing with more advanced web mapping technologies, creating beautiful- and easy to use mapping applications, maps and visualizations.

When I am not working on a project, I am either spending my time with my family / friends or traveling or flying and assembling quadcopters.
