As greater awareness spreads about mapping and visualization tools among USAID staff, demand for geospatial services in USAID missions, offices, and bureaus is growing significantly. This interactive seminar will introduce the Agency's newest geospatial resource, GeoCenter, to the development community. Staff from the GeoCenter will provide examples of the power of geospatial thinking as a tool for doing development differently and will illustrate examples of using maps to help decision makers plan future activities.  

Tomorrow's speakers will include:

Patrick Gault, GIS Analyst, USAID
Shadrock Roberts, GIS Analyst, USAID
Demian Rybock, GIS Analyst, USAID
Carrie Stokes, Geospatial Information Technology Advisor, USAID

USAID's past seminars have explored a range of development topics, innovative approaches, and diverse experiences among USAID and the development community.
