Measuring Environmental Impacts with Geospatial Data

December 06, 2017

Environmental projects benefit from the geospatial information, with both targeting and impact evaluation activities able to take advantage of a wide variety of global datasets that examine land cover change, vegetative density, and biodiversity.

This session presented a number of recent case-studies conducted by the Independent Evaluation Office of the Global Environment Facility with AidData leveraging spatial information, as well as introduce an online tool—GeoQuery (www.geoquery.org). The session also included a brief tutorial illustrating how to use GeoQuery, and an illustrative example of how this spatial data can be used in both impact evaluation and targeting contexts.
