Research Project

Currently am looking forward in completing a project on assessing the use of Geographical Information System (GIS) in decision making in Uganda. The aim of the project is to determine whether there is really some effective impacts that GIS has contributed in decision making since its adaption/implemetation in organizations in Uganda especially in health sector (public health). Strageties will be developed to encourage other organizations who have not adapted GIS for decision making to implement it.
