Location: Sanaa, Yemen
Starting Year: 2008
GPC, in collaboration with ESRI’s local distributor in Yemen, NATCO, is supporting the Republic of Yemen, Remote Sensing Center (YRSC) in the development of a roadmap for the development of the Yemen Spatial Data Infrastructure (YSDI). This has included conducting a rapid assessment of the existing situation in GIS and SDI readiness in several key agencies across the government, and the development of a multi-track approach for the development of the YSDI in both the short and medium term. The draft plan has been distributed and is undergoing review. A workshop will be held with all the stakeholders to further explain the draft roadmap and to work with the community to shape this into a final form that will be used to establish a formal SDI initiative at the National level.
