Field Guide to Humanitarian Mapping - Lo Res

Date: 19 August 2011

Summary:

The first edition of this field guide was published in 2009 and has been used by a broad spectrum of humanitarian and development organisations seeking practical and low cost ways to exploit geospatial methods in their work. In response to demand, MapAction is delighted to issue this second edition. Several chapters are expanded to meet users’ requests for more detail, particularly on where to find map data. Also, the Guide now gives step-by-step guidance on the use of Quantum GIS (QGIS), an open source software toolkit that has gone from strength to strength in its reliability and appropriateness for field use.

This guide has been compiled from MapAction’s experience in disaster preparedness and relief operations drawn from many training sessions and disaster emergency missions; however every situation is different. We greatly value comments and suggestions, and we will do our best to answer your questions about using GIS and GPS for humanitarian mapping in the field: please email info@mapaction.org. To download, click the PDF button (4mb).

This is the Low Res Version.
