CartONG’s mission is to provide mapping and information management services to humanitarian and development organizations, and to promote the use of Geographic Information System.
We provide to the relief and development actors the tools they need to acquire and manage data, working on a wide range of themes: post-disaster emergency mapping, struggle against deforestation, crop management, public health, mobile data collection, etc.
Our teams are permanently looking for the most efficient state-of-the-art tools and innovative technologies: smartphones, GPS, remote sensing, webmapping… We test new solutions on a regular basis, compare them and think on how to improve our workflows, particularly on the field. We have created this blog to share this experiences and discuss them with our fellow humanitarian workers.
Articles will mainly be written by CartONG’s staff and volunteers, but you can also submit your articles as long as they fit in our editorial policy.
We hope you’ll find this blog useful and count on you to help us make it alive through your comments!
Note: unlike CartONG’s website, this blog will not systematically be translated in both French and English, the articles will be written in the language chosen by the authors – please forgive us for any inconvenience that might causes.
