Harnessing geospatial data through geonode (English)

Effective risk assessment and disaster recovery efforts can only be as good as the data that informs them. With missing or inadequate risk information hindering resilience in many developing countries, the global facility for disaster reduction and recovery (GFDRR) developed geonode, a web-based, open source software that enables users to access, share, and visualize geospatial data. The platform was built on the principles of open source data, eliminating overhead costs and allowing customization to specific contexts and challenges. Geonode has been successfully deployed in a number of regions to aid with disaster preparedness and emergency relief, as well as a diverse range of applications including city planning, agriculture management, and the recent fight against the Ebola virus.
