ABOUT  THE SECTION

The Geographic Information Systems Section (GISS) has the basic aim of becoming a storehouse of variety of digital thematic maps of Ghana that would be needed for research, planning, policy decision-making, educational and other purposes. Our mission is to produce and distribute or disseminate maps that depict in cartographic form contemporary geographical knowledge and data concerning the physical conditions, natural resources, population and other socio-economic characteristics of Ghana. Our main objective is to collect and analyse data for the design and construction of thematic maps using geospatial technology to depict Ghana’s resources and development potential. The spatial resolution includes local communities, district assemblies, and the regions in Ghana. From the foregoing, the Section is mandated to collect data for the design and construction of Thematic maps on Ghana-at the national, regional and district levels and also to answer to the need of clients for special or customized maps.  Additionally, it is to use existing capacities to train individuals and institutions on techniques of spatial data documentation using Geographic Information Systems (GIS).
