Making poverty and sanitation maps interactive and intuitive for users

Short description 

Using poverty and sanitation maps to influence pro-poor policies

Crisis statement 

We are starting to better use data to map poverty and lack of access to sanitation, so we can develop static maps.  To make these maps more intutive for users it would help if there was a platform that would allow them to be more interactive.  Visualizing data can be powerful way to influence decision makers and those implementing programs. 

Impact statement 

WSP is working in 13 countries helping governments develop at scale rural sanitation programs.  Making these maps more interactive can serve as powerful evidence based advocacy tool to influence policy makers and programmers to use pro-poor targeting techniques to design programs.  This tool could help decision makers with more objective evidence on where public funds should be spent.
