GIS, on the other hand, is known for giving a spatial dimension to data by allowing users to view different types of data inform of layers, they are used to perform analysis and eventually publish a map.
GIS, when integrated with WASH, enables users to create models of complex environments making them easy to understand. This in turn aids in proper and informed decision making which speeds up the implementation of programs.
This training exposes participants to the use of GIS for WASH programs with respect to Data Sources, Mapping, Applications, Technology, and Timeline for implementation.
