Course Overview

Sustainable development projects are becoming more stakeholder centric and looking to measure impact so they can validate where purpose meets profit. Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) is critical for organizations to answer “What are we doing?”, ”Are we doing it well/right?” “Where is the overall impact?” The use of Geospatial tools in monitoring and evaluation makes it possible to integrate information from disparate sources for analysis. This course will help you to analyze combinations of mapped variables and present the data in the form of maps, charts, and graphs. You will also discover how this kind of analysis can drive improved outcomes.

  • Use Esri Survey123 and ArcGIS Online

  • Understand the M&E project cycle

  • Identify key stakeholders

  • Define your program pathway

  • Setup results based metrics

  • Align project to Sustainable Development Goals

  • Design data collection tools

  • Analyze and present impact maps and infographics

What You'll Learn

What can you achieve with these GIS M&E skills?

With these skills you’ll be able to use GIS to measure and prove investment value for a sustainable development project. 

Execute the M&E project cycle

You will walk through each step of the Monitoring & Evaluation project cycle.

Define results based metrics

You will examine a project and define the metrics that prove value..

Who Should Attend

The GIS industry is projected to be worth $18B by 2023. Despite this massive growth in new applications, there hasn’t been a single place for all of us to quickly learn tried and true skills from successful Subject Matter Experts (SMEs). Until Now! The people that purchase this course are:

  • College students and graduates looking to get fast track industry insights

  • Government professionals looking to retrain themselves and remain relevant

  • Corporate professionals looking to maintain a competitive advantage with relevant projects.

Why my course is useful

There are many large IT/Engineering/GIS projects that get funded and implemented, but no one has any idea if the resulting product was worth the cost. Every project should have the M&E process applied to it so you can 1) Request more investment for those that are working, 2) Adjust elements of a project that could be better, or 3) Maybe even abandon a project to productively place investment elsewhere.

Why I built it

I've had a lot of experience with NGOs as I sit on the boards of World Geospatial Industry Council (WGIC) and the United Nations Global Geospatial Information Management (UN-GGIM). And I find that many of the proposed projects are missing key business oversight. How I got into M&E was through requests by organizations that were asking for my help with metrics. So I leaned on my GIS experience to show the value of where things were happening. This course should be a natural extension to any GIS analyst's duties.

What I hope for you

I hope you see that making a map of where things are is not as valuable as generating additional metrics to determine project validation and worth. This is an underlying principle for the innovation and the NGO sectors that fight hard for funding. I hope M&E becomes part of your standard process so that your organization comes to you before every funding request to get your insights.
