Have you ever checked whether the hospitals and education sectors present in your vicinity are located accurately on the map?
LMKT and NUST Institute of Geographic Information System are going to do just that. Map it Pakistan is the first of its kind GIS activity to encourage student-led mapping efforts for accurate location data. The kick off ceremony will take place with all spirits at NUST Campus on April 20th, 2017. Registrations are now open for all the current students from IGIS-NUST. Teams comprising of 2-3 members will pin health and education locations in twin cities’ vicinage over two weeks period.
Most of the health and education institutes remain uncovered on maps. While prominent buildings are mapped, attributes such as public/private remain a challenge. The collected data will be available for public access in support of Open Source Data initiative.
LMKT trusts that the event organized with academia will add value by giving a practical activity to GIS aspirants. Workforce Management mobile application will serve as a medium to pin and collect location data. The application is designed and developed by experts at LMKT. WFM allows keeping a smart track of the activities with accurate tracking and geo-visualization of the members in the field.
