Geocoding Policy Holders Locations in Guatemala – MiCRO’s Initiative, 2015 & Downloading and Parsing OpenStreetMap data for Syria, 2015
I was content to share my GIS experience for humanitarian and poverty relief needs. I worked remotely for both missions, and acquired a lot of personal development skills. In addition, I proved that Open Source GIS tools and databases can be used to complete the work and achieve the same results as proprietary software.
There is an increased need for GIS support by many non-profit organizations. In a world suffering from brutal wars, diseases, and natural hazards, I would encourage every GIS professional to please give some of your skills and experience to help build a better life for the people.
