NCF GIS Training 

GIS is pertinent to almost all human activities regarding space. In today’s globalized world where people seek to make everything easier, we need GIS to make easy our spatial and temporal analysis. About 90% of our daily decisions are hinged on the question ‘where’.

GIS brings the world on our palms enabling us to make informed decisions about spatial issues. It makes evident patterns in life distributions and activities, thus helping in the location of phenomena and giving insight into the dynamics of such phenomena and nature in general. This further aids understanding of the relationship between the physical and human environment making easier the expressions of such relationships in maps and visual forms.

 

Space is thus everything, for without space we won’t be here in the first place since everything happens in space and time. Knowing where and why things are located on the surface of the earth, their distributions and the patterns they create, as well as their dynamics is very vital for sustainability. 

 

AIM

OBJECTIVES

1.      Capacity building of technical staff within and outside the foundation.

2.      Conceptualizing new projects and accountability of past projects.
