Moving from Pretty Pictures to Data Informed Decisions with GIS

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
Maps and charts are more than a pretty picture! Location is an essential component of your project life cycle!!!!

You don’t have to be a data geek to use GIS to better measure your impact against your goals, and engage with your stakeholders.

During this session, you will learn from your peers about opportunities to apply and expand the use of GIS in your projects, through success stories and lessons learned.

This will help you lay out a roadmap for how you can best leverage the use of GIS to support MERL.
