  • GIS for Monitoring and Evaluation Using QGIS

Course Description
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.  
The five days 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.
