This afternoon InterAction and the World Bank are holding a half day workshop on GIS strategy and open source tools for humanitarian aid and international development. This workshop will be today (Thursday, May 3) from 1:00 to 6:00 pm at the World Bank here in Washington, DC.
This event comes on the heels of the InterAction Forum and the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team board meeting, which brought many open geo and development leaders to town. It is designed to be a conversation around the challenges facing many organizations around GIS. Proponents from NGOs, the World Bank, the OpenStreetMap community, and the private sector will share their experiences around mapping in development and aid in a series of panels and workshops.
