Esri Summer Camp 2013 for Rwanda's Future

Improving Electricity Customer Services with GIS in Kigali

 

From November 30 to December 6, 2013 Esri Deutschland and Esri Rwanda in collaboration with Energy, Water and Sanitation Authority (EWSA) and support from JICA and CGIS-NUR will conduct the 6th GIS summer camp in Kigali.

Together with experts mentioned above, twenty secondary school pupils will capture relevant electricity facility data with GPS and analyse using GIS how problems in an electricity network can be solved faster and the power supply of EWSA customers can be improved.

The resulting maps will be used for both print outs and electronically. Analogue to Esri Summer Camps in other countries, the goal of the Esri Summer Camp 2013 in Rwanda is to showcase how students can use GIS to study the process of expanding and improving electrical services.
