Locating the geodata – an IATI experiment
Location data matters. Despite being one of the least published pieces of data on the IATI Standard, it is consistently highlighted as one of the most important. Without information on where donors are spending their money, aid practitioners are less able to avoid project duplication or identify gaps in funding. As part of the recent Tool Accelerator Workshop, organized by the Initiative for Open Ag Funding, a team of staff from GlobalGiving, Development Gateway and Publish What You Fund worked together to see if we could enhance and simplify the publication of this vital, yet lacking, data.
