Annual GIS WORKSHOPS
Since 2011, the Energy Sector GIS Working has organised annual GIS workshops in Kampala. The workshops are an excellent occasion to discover the latest trends in the geospatial industry and to experience how GIS technology can be used to improve planning, monitoring and decision making.
The workshops aims to provide a forum for GIS specialists, planners, monitoring and evaluation officers, decision makers and technology providers to present and discuss best practices for spatial data collection, data analysis, map presentation and system integration.
The Energy Sector GIS Working carries out regular GIS trainings for its members and for Energy Concessionaires. The trainings aim to improve the GIS skills of the participants and concentrate on specific topics e.g. Analysis of Geometric Networks, Cleaning of Topology Errors, Raster Data Analysis etc.
