Geovisualisation, geostatistical and geospatial analyses, eg in the field of spatial interpolation and topographic methods today implemented in the GRASS open source environment are freely available for practitioners worldwide. She is an active member of the Open Source Geospatial Foundation, recognized by the 2010 Sol Katz award <https://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/File:Helena_SolKatzAward_2010.jpg> for exceptional Open source geospatial community service.
