A Guide for Preparing, Mapping, and Linking Logistics Data to a Geographic Information System

Inglis, Andrew USAID | DELIVER PROJECT, Task Order 4 (2012)
This guide is an introduction on how to integrate logistics management information systems (LMIS) with geographic information systems (GIS). It covers the value of integrating these two systems, the steps in assessing if it is currently viable to link the systems, how to set the linkage, the processes for using LMIS within a GIS platform, and finally how to sustain the linkage. The aim of this guide is to assist logistics managers, decisionmakers and technical experts in understanding the value of integrating GIS and of the process involved in integrating these two systems.
