Geospatial data accessibility
Geospatial data accessibility

  • The data is accessible to other humanitarian actors

    • From HIC when data is available

    • From other main GIS actors (WFP/VAM, UNJLC etc.) with some restrictions

  • However, some main GIS actors in relief work

    • are not operational in all conflicts/natural disasters

    • are not all operational on day one

    • focus on the overall picture and not on all thematic/geographical areas

    • are grateful for GIS assistance

Geospatial data accessibility, cont.

  • Therefore, GIS facilities for all shelter actors are important and can facilitate

    • a complete Information Management by the individual actor

    • a better way of reporting

    • internal handling of geoinformation because of confidentiality

How small scale shelter actors can employ gis
How small-scale shelter actors can employ GIS

  • Identification of existing geospatial data available in relevant thematic/geographical area

  • Selection of relevant existing geospatial data for own work

  • Identification of additional data needs

  • Collection, e.g using GPS, of additional data

  • Data integration of geospatial data from point 2. and 4.

  • Map production

Case gis tools for nrc shelter activities
Case:GIS tools for NRC shelter activities

  • Train trainers in NRC in

    • identification of existing geospatial data relevant for NRC’s shelter activities

    • collection of other geospatial data and use of GIS/GPS systems

    • incorporation of GPS data in a GIS software

    • map production

Expected outcomes
Expected outcomes

  • GIS tools established for NRC’s field operations that is

    • adapted to existing geospatial data from main actors

    • inexpensive

    • user friendly

  • Trained NRC staff use actively GPS and GIS in their daily operations in the field
