GIS for Monitoring and Evaluation Course
Oct 3 @ 11:00 AM – Oct 14 @ 3:00 PM

This is a comprehensive ten days course designed to help participants learn and understand how to use GIS in projects Monitoring and Evaluation. The participants will be exposed to data collection, management, updating, analysis, visualization and reporting in a GIS environment. They will also learn how to integrate spatial and non-spatial data from different sources and displaying the same in a GIS environment.

At the end of the training, participants shall have learnt the following:

  • Understanding and appreciating GIS, What it can do, and how others are using it in relation to M&E.
  • Participants shall learn the basic functions of a GIS, GIS Terminology, and why GIS is powerful tool for data analysis, retrieval and visualization.
  • In course exercises, students work with QGIS to visualize geographic data, create maps, query a GIS database, and perform spatial analysis in relation to M&E.
  • The course shall provide a complete field to office mobile mapping workflow to the participants. Participants shall use their mobile devices to collect data, load the data into GIS and create maps from data collected.
  • The course will enable the participants to also edit existing databases in the field and creating new data using field data collection techniques (Kobo Toolbox and ODK).

Web-based GIS and Mapping using ArcGIS online & QGIS Training @ Virtual and Face-to-Face (Nairobi)
Oct 31 @ 11:00 AM – Nov 4 @ 3:00 PM

Web mapping is the process of using maps delivered by geographical information systems (GIS) on the internet through client- server architecture.
Web mapping usually involves a web browser to consume services.
These services include serving interactive maps, GIS data and location based services.
Participants will learn how to prepare and share geographic information so that it can effectively be used by colleagues, decision-makers, and non-GIS audiences.
The course  will focus on:
–       Web Mapping Technology,
–       Web Mapping architecture, application and tools.
The goal of this training course is to introduce users to the concept of web mapping.

This course will cover the following topics
Day 1:
Web GIS Basics
Basics of Web GIS Architecture
Web Services and Mashups
An introduction / Review of ArcGIS Online
Day 2:
Basics of Web programing and development:
HTML, JavaScript and CSS.
Day 3:
Spatial Databases: Postgres-Postgis spatial database
Day 4:
Publishing map services on Geoserver
Day 5:
Consuming map services and sharing data:
Introduction to open source and proprietary web mapping API’s and scripting environments.
Software/Applications to be used
– Text editor / Notepad++
– Qgis v 2.8+
– Postgres
– Tomcat
– Geoserver
– ArcGIS (Desktop& Server where applicable)
