At the same time, the country lacks advanced geospatial platforms to support disaster preparedness and response efforts. On August 21, 2023, iMMAP Inc. launched the Humanitarian Spatial Data Center (HSDC). This cutting-edge, web-based geospatial platform leverages the most reliable geospatial and non-geospatial data, providing data and analytics on demographics, disaster risks, climatic changes, and more.
With HSDC's accurate data, aid organizations can develop disaster preparedness strategies and more precisely gauge the immediate and long-term impact on communities and infrastructure.. Furthermore, HSDC enables aid organizations across the country to collaborate and coordinate with each other seamlessly, as well as exchange invaluable datasets and insights.
