Collecting and managing geo-tagged data for M&E, with simple tools and local skills: The Geo-Enabling initiative for Monitoring and Supervision (GEMS)
This workshop will train M&E stakeholders in the use of simple and cost-free open-source tools to create customized digital field data collection and analysis systems. These data automatically feed into a centralized system that allows for geo-tagged data visualization of infrastructure investments, service delivery, or any kind of field activities. As the underlying technology is based on open source software, the system itself presents a low-threshold and efficient solution for data management as a basis for various real-time monitoring, supervision and evaluation uses.
