INTRODUCTION

GIS is a computer system that assembles, stores, manipulates and displays geographically referenced information, i.e. data identified according to their locations. The incorporation of GIS in monitoring and Evaluation improves the effectiveness and communications of results to management, funding partners, and beneficiaries by making it possible to link, or integrate information that is difficult to associate through any other means.

This training will therefore present a practical guide for using a geographic information system (GIS) integrated with Monitoring and Evaluation. By using the GIS to link data from multiple programs the trainees will understand the individual programs better as well as understand the relationships between the programs. 

Participants who successfully complete the course will receive a Certificate of Participation.

OBJECTIVES

By the end of this course the participants will be able to:

·      Properly understand key concepts in M&E and GIS

·      Evaluate about the working of M&E information management systems

·      Collect data using mobile phones and GPS

·      Integrate exiting M&E data with GIS

·      Critically analyze and visualize M&E data with the aid of GIS techniques

·      Assimilate GIS into M&E activities

DURATION

 This course will take approximately 5 days
