“Show me the good grass: an open GIS powered call center for livestock herders in Mali.”
2019-08-28, 16:30–16:50, Hora Room
A call center powered by an open GIS platform helps livestock herders in Northern Mali find pasture and water through the "Sustainable Technology Adaptation for Malian Pastoralists" (STAMP) programme. Herders can now access life-saving information by phoning call center agents, who in turn provide the outlook from Earth Observation and real-time field survey data to herders. This talk will show how the system was built, what we learned works (and doesn’t!), demonstrate the dashboard and show how to download and play with the datasets.
