NLT’s Chief Scientist and Senior Consultant Ran Goldblatt worked in partnership with International Initiative for Impact Evaluation (3ie) to lead a workshop on remote sensing and satellite imagery. Working with ten researchers from the African Population and Health Research Center (APHRC), the workshops focused on using geospatial data for impact evaluation from remote sensing technology. Participants of the event have written a series of four blogs about their experiences and findings from the event as part of 3ie’s blog series, Evidence Matters.
The first blog in the series written by Sylvia Myuingo, Moussa Bagayoko, Aayush Malik, and Ran Goldblatt focuses on machine learning and remote sensing as new evaluation tools in impact evaluation. Read the first blog post as part of Evidence Matters.
The second blog in the series written by Dennis Akeyo, Henry Owoko, Aayush Malik, and Ran Goldblatt focuses on using geospatial data for measuring vegetation impact on agricultural productivity. Read the second blog post as part of Evidence Matters.
The third blog in the series written by Michelle Mbuthia, Francis Kiroro, Aayush Malik, and Ran Goldblatt focuses on mapping the impact of urbanization on vegetation in Nairobi. Read the third blog post post as part of Evidence Matters.
The fourth and final blog in the series focuses on applications of nighttime light data in international development research. Read the fourth blog post as part of Evidence Matters.
