GIS for Monitoring and Evaluation Training Course

GIS for Monitoring and Evaluation Training Course

Course Preview

GIS is a computer system capable of assembling, storing, manipulating and displaying geographically referenced information, i.e. data identified according to their locations. This training will present a practical guide for using a geographic information system (GIS) integrated with Monitoring and Evaluation. GIS for Monitoring and Evaluation training is aimed at helping development partners to monitor and evaluate the activities of specific projects intended to support M&E systems for sustainable programs and projects. The use of GIS in monitoring and Evaluation improves the effectiveness and communications of results to management, funding partners and beneficiaries.

The integration of   GIS in monitoring and Evaluation makes it possible to link, or integrate information that is difficult to associate through any other means. With GIS M&E/Researchers are able to use combinations of mapped variables to build and analyze new variables. Presenting data in the form of a map helps to understand the significance of where, when, and by whom.

The training is purposely designed to impart knowledge on integrating GIS with Monitoring and Evaluation in project management, thus improving the effectiveness and communications of results to management, funding partners, and beneficiaries.
