GIS Institutionalization at Wards

GIS is a tool for modeling natural, economic, social processes and situations, tracking their relationships, interactions, predicting development in space and time, obtaining new qualitative and quantitative information, and, most importantly – a means of providing (support) decision-making of a managerial nature and presenting conclusions. Only a few wards of Kathmandu and Lalitpur have a GIS facility. ISET-Nepal, through the Safer City Project, supported six Wards of Kathmandu Metropolitan City (number 10,12, and 31) and Lalitpur Metropolitan City (number 2, 9, and 11) with a GIS system. The system will enable the wards to use the GIS to store and display maps to make better decisions and solve problems. The project also built their capacities to use the GIS system.
