As a GIS professional, I have more than 6 years of experience in management, technical support and capacity building of geospatial projects, including acquisition and management of spatial databases, advanced spatial analysis and visualization of geospatial products. Building upon my prior work regarding Urban Health Atlas (www.urbanhealthatlas.com), I’ve developed GIS capacity and promoted the use of state-of-the-art GIS for projects in public health sector.
We support communicable disease control programs under the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MOHFW) in Bangladesh through collection of high quality, high resolution geospatial data. The initial goal is to map communities in selected rural areas. Once, complete, the next stap will be to label the polygons with the names of communities through crowdsourcing.
