GIS for community

Not-for-profit groups and community-development organisations are increasingly turning to Geographic Information System (GIS) technology to make their advocacies and initiatives more impactful.

GIS technology allows organisations to combine, map and analyse layers of data to provide a comprehensive, visual perspective of a situation.

By helping community groups better understand their intended beneficiaries and their needs, GIS technology empowers these groups to more effectively design and deliver their programs and initiatives.
