Geospatial Data

Community of Practice

 

Welcome!

The Community of Practice on Geospatial data is led by IFPRI and has been launched as a part of the CGIAR Platform for Big Data in Agriculture.

This community facilitates CGIAR’s research using geospatial data and analysis, undertaking activities to bring spatial scientists together through coordinated communication, community-developed products, and the convening of members at various events to represent CGIAR in the geospatial domain of expertise.

This space can be used as a discussion area, share and request relevant information and contribute towards building the community as a whole.

Community Partners
We work closely with our external partners in academia, donors, and public/private sectors – including ITC, Esri, Digital Globe, and Geospatial and Farming Systems Research Consortium.

Community Members
Members of CGIAR-CSI include all geospatial scientists across CGIAR. Community-wide activities are coordinately by the Global Coordinator. Center-level activities are coordinated by the Center Representative. Currently (as of October 2017), CGIAR-CSI reaches to 90 members across all 15 CGIAR Centers.

If you use geospatial data and analyses in CGIAR, join our community! For external party interest, please sign up for updates or email us direct.
