Space Technology and Geographic Information Systems Applications in ADB Projects

Space technology and geographic information systems (GIS) help development organizations like ADB achieve their missions. They can improve operations efficiency and effectively address issues in sustainable development.

This report provides an overview of the space technology and GIS applications in ADB to date by introducing some of the past and ongoing ADB projects that have applied space technology and/or GIS. It also includes information about how the technologies were applied, the service providers, and the cost for the application, so that practitioners including staff of development organizations and government staff in Developing Member Countries (DMCs) can easily apply similar technologies to their projects and/or daily operations.
