Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
There are many technical experts, researchers and analysts making valuable contributions to the development and humanitarian fields. However, their work can sometimes be difficult to interpret, understand and act on. How can ICT professionals use geospatial tools, analytics and visualizations to communicate insights and findings to a wide range of stakeholders that are critical to the success of development and humanitarian efforts?

Join us for a discussion with a diverse group of practitioners who use various geospatial analysis and visualization approaches to help communicate key messages and findings derived from complex data and information without overwhelming their audience.

Our panelists will share their experience about how they use geospatial technology to analyze data and create informative and compelling visualizations to communicate complex analytical insights that improve coordination, situational awareness and communicate results to beneficiaries, funders and advocates.
