GRID3 Nigeria Project: NASRDA On Threshold Of History

May 31, 2021

Developed nations of the world utilise geospatial information systems (GIS) on regular basis to collect data for proper planning and decision making. For obvious reasons, Nigeria has taken the bull by the horn to key into the Geo-referenced Infrastructure and Demographic Data for Development known as GRID3 project in order to make life more meaningful for her citizenry as well as to ensure radical development across the country. The GRID3 project is an international initiative to support low- and middle-income countries to collect, analyse, integrate, disseminate and utilize high resolution georeferenced data on population, health, boundaries, settlements, and infrastructure.
