GIS Specialist: Mr FC Persendt, BSc Hons (Geol.) (UWC), Dip PC Specialist (Intec)

Since May 2002, the Department of Geography, History and Environmental Studies is operating the Laboratory for Spatial Analysis. The equipment, installed in cooperation with the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, facilitates teaching and research in fields of Geographical Information Systems (GIS). Together with remote sensing, GIS offers students and researchers alike sophisticated tools applied in spatial analysis. By nature, the Laboratory is a multi-purpose and trans-faculty component in the Department of Geography, History and Environmental Studies. The Laboratory continues to play a crucial role in the departmental undergraduate and postgraduate education and research as well as in human capacity building programmes of the private and public sectors of the economy.

Station Co-ordinator: Mr R Tyson, BMus, BA Comm (Unisa), MMus (UCT)

UNAM Radio 97.4 was established during the year 2000 as part of the University’s mission to increase practical student involvement with media and highlight UNAM activities to the wider community.

Students are encouraged to develop their technical and presentation skills and produce a variety of programmes for the community, focusing on issues such as HIV/AIDS, teenage pregnancy, alcohol abuse and job creation.

The station is equipped with the latest digital computer technology, consisting of a presentation suite with a wide variety of computer-based music and jingles, as well as mixing capacity for other sources, including cassette and CD. In addition, guests can be accommodated for interview purposes and a hybrid on-air system allows for telephone callers to be placed on air.

The production suite is equipped with four-channel digital editing for mixing purposes, and is used as a training facility for students specializing in broadcast production. Public service announcements are also mixed in this facility along with pre-recorded features, interviews and documentaries.

The station broadcasts 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and is operated fully by students, who are responsible for technical and presentation operations. A series of feature programmes are presented, focusing on issues of relevance to the listenership, including health, economy, education and careers guidance. Local talent, especially students trying to gain exposure for their music, is featured in a special programme broadcast on Fridays.

Transmissions from the African Learning Channel and Voice of America are also broadcast, giving listeners a variety of informative programme material from international broadcasters.

Other programmes include popular music features, including requests and messages for the UNAM campus community and special music features, including regular programmes with music from francophone and lusophone countries.
