Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are databases linked to digital maps. Many public and private sectors in Uganda have begun using GIS technology to facilitate more effective analysis, planning, and management. The Bundibugyo District Water Office, in collaboration with the Directorate of Water Development (DWD) and World Harvest Mission (WHM), has actively applied this technology to the area of water resource management. We are currently updating and compiling a database of all water sources. We will then begin producing relevant charts and maps. The end goal is to translate this information into effective action for the operation and maintenance of existing water supply systems and informed planning of future systems.
