These maps were created with CartoDB during the course of geovisualization at the University of Zurich
Gionata and Tobias met in the course of Geovisualization, sharing a passion for maps and geographic interactions.
With different backgrounds they used their individual skills to start a project to map food waste and disparity across the world.
Gionata is doing a MSc. in Atmospheric Science and Climate at ETH Zürich and he is really passioned about everything is "Geo".
With a previous background in environmental engineering developped in Lausanne at EPFL, he is now specializing on spatial analysis, statistical modelling and data mining of climate and remote sensing data.
Gionata is also strong passionate about science outreach, communication and web-mapping concerning all topics of environmental sciences, big-data and renewable energy.

Tobias is doing his master in geography at the University of Zürich to become a teacher in geography and mathematics.
Previously, he did a Bachelor at the University of Bern in Mathematics with a Minor in Geography. He decided to continue his master at Zürich to apply his mathematical knowledge in physical geography and GIS.
He is interested in human-nature-interactions, especially in the field of hydrology, where he is going to write his master thesis at UZH.
