The GeoCenter serves a coordinating role for USAID by providing guidance, technical assistance, and resources on the use of spatial analysis and Geographic Information Systems (GIS). The GeoCenter works with Missions and Washington offices on a range of planning, policy and learning activities by employing geographic methods and technology to help USAID think spatially about how we understand the problems we are trying to solve, how we design the programs we support, and how we monitor and evaluate these activities.
