New InterAction working group

With the increasing use of geospatial information systems (GIS) in the NGO community, InterAction has formed a new working group for members who use or are interested in using GIS in their work.

The GIS Working Group (GIS-WG) is a forum for discussion and collaborative action around GIS and spatial data management. The working group seeks to strengthen institutional capacity, educate and share operational lessons learned, and collectively engage within the broader international development and humanitarian community over issues of data management, collection, and sharing as they apply to GIS mapping.

The first meeting of the GIS-WG will be in summer 2011.

If you are an InterAction member and would like to join the GIS-WG, or for more information, please email
