This Activity is designed to cover two weeks so submission is on the 21st October.
If there are questions please kindly post as a reply to this post so that we can all Learn from it and also ensure this Activity is collaborative enough. We need the classroom experience to help ensure our Diploma is highly acceptable anywhere in the world.
Right after the video on the Activity post (meant to help understand the role GIS played in water supply and distribution in a community) a spreadsheet file called water dataset is attached to the sentence. Please download the dataset by clicking on the hyperlink then map the datasets with carto.com just Like you did in the 4th Activity.
Based on the map generated, please produce analysis on the spread water points on the map and what the government can do better.
Best to find the patterns from the points, scroll down to the map and probably do some research about the communities. Let the data point spread speak for itself and then you draw up the narratives. Be easy on yourself too.
After loading the data to carto all I can deduce from it is the spread of the points. However I can't really see much beyond this except looking at the data set directly (perhaps taking note of the abandon water project or contractors handling the projects).
Yes, @adesope, covering this "perhaps taking note of the abandoned water project or contractors handling the projects" is a great idea. We want the diverse opinion on the datasets but most importantly we need to know that everyone can analyze geospatial data.
Admin, yes, I can help them. How do I reach them? Through their email???
1. Also, Admin, I have sent in my 5th Activity since October 18 and I did it in part, detailed and as ms-word attachment; A and B. I sent it to the GIS email @[email protected] But I am WORRIED, I haven't seen response on what I did, if I did well or I what I need to do better. Please check your mail and feed me back as appropriate. Please, what is the problem??? My GIS tutorial mail is [email protected]
2. I want to apply for the ASF 2017 program, I am an undergraduate student. I have checked everything I need to know on the site. I am working on my Resume and Cover letter. As soon as I am through, I will like to send to you to help me check it before forwarding to the right quarters. Thanks Admin.
Good evening timilansy, very sincere apologies for the slow reply. Some pressure on this side. I will get to work on this and give a reply soon. Though early for the 5th Activity, it is meant to be due today and we are expected to start grading tomorrow. So technically it is not Late.
And on the application, please do so and email me so I can make comment.
I have also checked the link you gave me to check, where I can access data repositories, @www.Localdata.ng. i got there now but I wanted to pick the Carto- Foreign aid to Nigeria data and download, it is asking me for password which I don't think I have. So, i filled a form hoping to access it but it's still not a different case. What do I do?
