Cadasta’s Virtual Tools Training
December 14-18th, 2020
Cadasta Foundation has designed virtual training on the uses of Cadasta tools and technical approaches. This virtual training is intended to benefit partners who seek to document land rights at a community level but lack the necessary geospatial tools and skills.
Through this free virtual training, Cadasta Foundation aims to support grassroots community groups, local nonprofit organizations, and other land rights stakeholders and advocates that might not otherwise be able to gain the access to and skills needed for Cadasta’s tools. This information is designed to allow partners to make data-driven decisions and put vulnerable communities and their needs on the map!
Participants will be trained on how to use Cadasta’s tools, including mobile applications for data collection and web applications for data management, visualization, data sharing, and analysis. Participants will also have access to Cadasta’s high-quality imagery, data layers, dashboards, and analytical tools for monitoring, advocating, storytelling, and reporting. Cadasta’s platform and tools are built on open standards and access, and are supported by Esri ArcGIS technology—the world’s leading, cloud-based mapping and analytics platform.
- Participants must complete the online application form.
- Submission of a personal statement identifying the means and/or desire to implement the technical skills learned from training into aspects of paid work or community service (250 words max).
- Applications for the Monthly Cadasta Tools Virtual Trainings will be accepted through December 1, 2020.
- Successful applicants will be notified by email by December 4, 2020.
- Once selected for the training, the trainee will be scheduled for virtual training for three hours each day, from December 14-18th, 2020.
- Each training participant will be provided with a user account for a three-month period, unless a new partnership with Cadasta is established.
Selected grantees will:
- Have access to a computer connected to stable internet connection during the training.
