The training on GIS for monitoring and evaluation helps project administrators apply GIS to observe and measure the activities of particular tasks in an attempt to record positive results, enhance sustainability and create workable solutions to issues found. Through this instruction, we are going to examine several ways one can create maps to explain, measure and show project outcomes.

By utilizing the GIS to link information from several programs the training is likely to make it possible to recognize the person shows better but additionally better understand the connection between the systems. Spatial analysis methods will even assist with deriving outcomes methods.
