Geographical data management training in Yangon, Myanmar

In the framework of the EuropeAid funded project aimed at building local capacities on solid waste management in Myanmar, ITHACA organized and held a training course on geographical data management. Training attendees were staff from the Pollution Control and Cleansing Department (PCCD) of the Yangon City Development Committee (YCDC).

This was the 3rd of 4 training sessions aimed at providing PCCD with full capacity to acquire, manage, analyze and display geographic data in support of the waste management process, with a focus on very high resolution optical satellite imagery.
