Ensuring Access to Water Point Data

We developed the Water Point Data Exchange (WPDx) to improve access to critical information relating to water points in developing regions.

Open data plays a crucial role in supporting humanitarian aid initiatives. With the WPDx, actors on the ground can gather water point information and upload it straight to the portal. The project was funded by the Global Environment and Technology Foundation and developed by while true’s Adam, who built in a data ingestion engine that allows organizations on the ground to upload their data as they collect it. The platform maps data onto a schema before uploading it to a central database, where it undergoes further cleaning, de-duplication and geoprocessing to maximise its usefulness for stakeholders.
