Webinar Description 

Are you looking to understand your constituents better via location info? Do you want to display the breadth of your programs and mission using mapping?

Find out how one group quickly, easily and cheaply built a suite of high-quality spatial applications in this webinar on web mapping using Esri's GIS tools. These tools can help organizations manage everything from responding to major disasters to program planning and evaluation to fundraising and communications.

Andrew Schroeder, Director of Research and Analysis for Direct Relief International, discusses how they used these tools during the 2010 Haiti Earthquake disaster recovery effort.  He also explains how his organization built upon those tools to collaborate with UNFPA and The Fistula Foundation in the construction of the Global Fistula Map.  David Gadsden, Global Program Lead of Esri's non-profit program also talks about the suite of tools available through TechSoup's Partner Program including Community Analysis, a cloud-based application.
