As part of iMMAP's Inc. commitment to delivering information management services to the partners to support the most vulnerable populations, iMMAP Inc. Ukraine team developed an interactive Digital Atlas - a comprehensive GIS tool that provides accurate geospatial information in a user-friendly and integrated manner: Ukraine Digital Atlas. Drawing from multiple data sources, the Atlas presents a multi-layered, interactive map of Ukraine, enabling a comprehensive spatial understanding of the complex humanitarian and developmental landscape. One of its strongest features is that the tool is straightforward, easy to use and adapted for people with a minimal understanding of IM: both specialists and non-IM technical specialists can easily produce maps to support their and their partners’ own operational activities, and transform complex data into visually attractive and intelligible information, even while lacking GIS capacity.
Another unique strength of the Atlas lies in its inherent adaptability, as maps parameters are fully adjustable, allowing organizations to toggle and customize the display of various data layers as per their specific requirements. The Atlas combines a variety of open-source geospatial information in one repository, available to all humanitarian actors. The flexibility in data representation helps in identifying patterns, trends, and correlations that might otherwise be hidden in a more traditional, static map. User-led customization facilitates a more nuanced analysis, fueling effective strategy formulation and impactful interventions. Furthermore, export functionality enables users to print the digital adjusted maps in high quality after exporting it in PDF or PNG format.
