Apart from the basics of map making, ggeographic information systems and remote sensing are powerful tools in identifying “hot-spots” or “red flag” areas necessary for prioritizing efforts. GIS can also facilitate sharing of spatial data in different fields including health, development, natural sciences, etc.
