Faneva is from Madagascar. She graduated with a Masters in Information Technology – Mobiquity, Database and System Integration from the University of Nice Sophia Antipolis in 2017.
She had the opportunity to work on the OpenDRI project in Madagascar. Thanks to this project, she was able to attend training on how to create data on OpenStreetMap, QGIS, InaSAFE, and GeoNode. Faneva then became interested in the GIS field. Other than gaining knowledge from this, she has been self-taught using online resources such as OSGeo forums and mailing lists. She then went on to develop a QGIS Plugin while she worked for a GIS company in Antananarivo, Madagascar.
Faneva has been inspired by people she has met during conferences and summits she has attended. From a Windows user, she became a Linux user. She has made a small contribution to the QGIS project. Due to her fluency in French, she has contributed to correcting linguistic errors on GeoNode.
Faneva is very happy to be a permanent member of the Kartoza Team after GIS training she conducted as a Contractor to Kartoza, part of her GIS journey.
Living in Antananarivo Madagascar, she has a passion for walking in small villages around the city. In her free time, Faneva enjoys reading and also tries to practice yoga and meditation.
