Geospatial Data

 

 

Welcome

To the GeoSpatial Data Community of Practice

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.
