Transcript

  • 1. Using Mapping for Targeting and Evaluation Madhu Lakshmanan LSNTAP
  • 2. GIS/Mapping  What is GIS and what can it do?  A powerful and complex set of programs that can do anything from simple directions, showing us a map to helping us measure the depths of the ocean and the height of a building, to re-drawing a country’s boundaries using a satellite.  In our context  Help us visualize data that is tied to location i.e. geo-referenced data, in useful ways
  • 3. What do I need?  A GIS system  There are many out there, from simple to very complex and from free to expen$ive.  Supporting programs – spreadsheets or charting programs  Data (and if needed, some conversion tools)  Some training and a lot of interest.
  • 4. Using Google Earth for mapping  Free (there is a paid Pro version but you may not need it)  Has a very large and growing user base and developer community  Easier to explore and learn on your own  Does not have as many options as some of the more established systems such as the Arc family
  • 5. Example 1 – Mapping Census Demographics using Google Earth Percent Population Age 65 or Older in Whole State of Michigan, by county and by zipcode areas

  • 7. Placing data on a map
  • 8. Placing data aggregates on a map
