Vanuatu maps and web applications for the Vanuatu Electoral Environment Project (VEEP)
UNDP Crisis Bureau assisted UNDP Vanuatu in coordination with UNOSAT to explore the potential uses of geo-information tools in the Civil and Electoral Registries validation as part of VEEP.
Very High Resolution (VHR) satellite imagery was acquired and analysed to provide baseline data, which was used for civil and voter registry verification and validation process in selected provinces.
The project was scaled up to cover more provinces and produce several other map products
The aim of this presentation was to showcase the project work, so far, undertaken by UNOSAT to partners and stakeholders. The aim of this was to demonstrate maps and applications created to show the potential and discuss additional data and analysis going forward.
