Urban Planning and Geographical Information System are two terms interrelated. Before doing Urban Planning there some issues to consider, for example
- Topography/Landform
- Vegetation of an area
- Water table of an area
Therefore in this workshop, the audience will benefit from how to use GIS in performing accurate Urban Planning. Various open-source software will be used: QGIS, JOSM,ODK, and Satellite Imagery

Don't forget to register before we run out of tickets!

After this workshop, the audience will be able to perform the following
- To download and preprocessing satellite imagery
- To process satellite imagery using QGIS
- To use Open Data Kit and Kobotoolbox Server in Data Collection
- To use JOSM in an advanced way
