MEASURE GIS Working Group Meeting, June 2012

The MEASURE GIS Working Group Meeting took place June 26, 2012, at JSI in Rossyln, VA.

Use of geospatial tools and data in the international development sector has increased as the value of the technology has become apparent. As innovations and successes become more numerous it can be challenging to stay abreast of the latest achievements. The June 2012 MEASURE GIS Working Group Meeting highlighted recent innovations and presented future directions of the technology.
