Regional technical training held in Dakar, Senegal, on mobile data collection, cartography and GIS

Following up on the May / June training in Cotonou, Benin, the SRI-WAAPP Regional Coordination Unit led a 4-day training August 3-6 in Dakar, Senegal, to reinforce skills learned in Cotonou, and to broaden the scope to include SRI Champions and SRI-WAAPP National Facilitators. Participants came from Senegal, Mali, Burkina Faso, Benin, Nigeria, Togo, Côte d’Ivoire, Guinea, the Gambia, Sierra Leone and Liberia.

The training provided a hands-on introduction to ESRI’s ArcGIS platform, their new Survey 123 mobile data collection system, and creating outputs for communicating project activities using their interactive Story Maps feature. To see the training report in English, click here.
