RTB Priority Setting Background Analysis Meeting

CIAT DAPA writes about our current RTB Priority Setting Background Analysis Meeting which is taking place at the headquarters of CIAT in Cali, Colombia:

RTB (Roots, Tubers and Bananas) Workshop Starts today in Cali Colombia CIAT’s headquarters. We have 19 people from IITA, CIAT, CIP and Bioversity. One of our objectives is to test out cloud technology for sharing geographic information. We are using resources from the CGIAR Consortium for Spatial Information’s (CSI)  agreement with Environmental Systems Research Institute (ESRI). The technology is ArcGIS Online. The four CGIAR centers are pooling together their data and putting it in ArcGIS Online.

By now we have spent two days on GIS work for geographical impact targeting, reviewing data and testing a large amount of different map overlays. It was an exciting exercise and we are looking forward for the final results coming up.
