One of the fundamental principles of monitoring and evaluation is ensuring that services and interventions are effective and adequately address health needs. Knowing the location of the service or intervention, as well as the population in need, can provide meaningful context and strengthen the analysis. A vital tool for obtaining location are global positioning system (GPS) receivers.<p> This document provides an overview of the use of GPS receivers for MEASURE Evaluation Projects. It is intended to provide standardized data collection protocols as well as training materials and troubleshooting guides. This toolkit is designed to be taken into the field, along with the GPS units, and serve as a reference for data collection personnel.
