  • 1. Geographic Approach: Building Geospatial Capability for an Agency
  • 2. Agenda • GeoCenter Summary • Building USAID Capability • Monitoring & Evaluation • Software options for beginners
  • 3. USAID GeoCenter GeoCenter created in Nov 2011 as the first Geospatial office for all of USAID devoted to applying geographic analysis to development programming through: • Mapping & Analysis • Building agency capacity to use geographic data & tools • Establishing resources & methods to collect, manage, use, and share data • Engaging with geospatial communities: interagency, international, NGO, academic, private sector
  • 4. Geographic Approach
  • 5. GeoCenter Program Structure GeoCenter organized to focus on supporting programs: • Remote Sensing • Geospatial Training • Visualizations & Cartography • AGOL (ArcGIS Online) • Analysis
  • 6. •Established network of 43 USAID GIS Specialists • Mostly FSNs •Conducted 20 trainings •Trained 280 staff GeoCenter USAID Capacity Building MISSIONS PILLAR BUREAUS REGIONAL BUREAUS PARTNERS
  • 7. Building Mission GeoCapability • Mission Malawi - Focused on longer term geospatial programing • Consists of one Program Office with strong GIS experience • Four Technical Offices with designated M&E Specialists • GeoCenter to build capacity of the entire Mission by focusing levels of training on specific groups
  • 8. Building Mission GeoCapability Program Office 1- GIS Advisor 4 Tech Offices 1 M&E GIS each Tech Office Many Data Creators Field Operators Many GIS Users Beginner- Maps for Office Advanced- ArcGIS Open- QGIS Training
  • 9. Building Mission GeoCapability • AIDtracker + is an interim solution for mission performance information management • More than 26 missions have expressed interest in adopting AT+ • GeoCenter supporting AidTracker + rollout • GeoCenter traveling to 5 Missions for AT+ roll out visits to train geospatial aspects of AT+
  • 10. Introducing GIS through Excel-AGOL
  • 11. Introducing GIS through Excel-AGOL Esri Maps for Office, Key Features • Create dynamic color-coded, point, clustered point, or heat maps. • Add demographics and lifestyle layers to addresses and locations. • Display infographics that provide instant information about people in a specific area. • Find all locations in one map layer that are within a certain distance of locations in another map layer. • Add your interactive maps to PowerPoint presentations or paste map images into a document.
