Location intelligence for World Bank software and initiatives

August 20th, 2018, Published in Articles: PositionIT

Esri has entered into a memorandum of understanding with the World Bank, an international organisation with the mission to reduce global poverty. Under the agreement, the company’s software will geo-enable the World Bank’s Survey Solutions software, allowing staff to improve accuracy and quicken the kinds of data collection, analysis, and decision-making that countries need to address the most urgent development challenges. The organisations will collaborate to deliver solutions that integrate spatial analytics technology into the World Bank’s Survey Solutions and Cloud for Development. Esri’s tools will bring real-time data collection and visualisation to these solutions, particularly as they relate to Census 2020. The World Bank’s Survey Solutions is a computer-assisted personal interviewing software that helps build capacity for data collection and analysis in developing nations. It does this by offering national statistical agencies and other institutions involved in data collection a cost-effective and sustainable solution for conducting surveys. Providing a location component to survey data collection enables field teams to cover populations more efficiently and accurately and begin to put into action a global statistical geospatial framework.
