Spatial Collective Limited is a Nairobi-based social enterprise that uses Geographic Information Systems for community development. Through data collection and visualization, we support communities to identify available resources and apply this knowledge in development initiatives. We work with myriad actors, including local residents, governments, non-governmental organizations, small businesses and research institutions. Our collective expertise lies in community organizing, participatory digital mapping, web-based mapping technologies, and data collection and communication. We implement projects that build the capacity of local institutions, and advise organizations on the effective uses of digital maps.
Spatial Collective provides comprehensive solutions for producing, managing and visualizing geographic and other information. Through data collection and visualization, we support companies, organizations and communities to understand available resources, current and future needs, trends and solutions. Our platforms connect multiple users to information through existing communication channels and the use of innovative technology and up to date community development techniques.
Citizens are experts in their own communities. The process of locally-led data collection is a powerful tool to address local issues. This process is used to empower collective action and develop insights that would be impossible using other means.Click For More
