Uganda to embrace GIS for road safety

It plans to apply part of the proceeds for consulting services. The consulting services include the development of a GIS-based Right of Way Management Information System (ROW-MIS).
The GIS-based ROW-MIS aims to enhance planning, preparation, implementation and monitoring of the Resettlement Action Plan (RAP) processes. The system will include a databank to facilitate data collection, storage, display and spatial analysis. The service will be provided within a period of twelve months.
