WaSHMIS

When it comes to water management in cities, planning service improvements cannot be done effectively without a proper GIS system. The first step of setting up the GIS is asset registry, which has not been done by many utilities yet. Key asset tracking of pipes, meters and valves is of utmost importance to water companies and water boards. Upande is developing a modular suite of tools that can be licensed by water boards or water companies.

The platform dubbed WaSHMIS consists of local and optional mobile and cloud based components. For more information on this, please visit the WaSHMIS website.

 

Upande has been working in the WASH (Water, Sanitation, Health) sector since it started back in 2009. This started with the building of water/sanitation benchmarking tools for our client GWOPA. This tool was extended with GRUBS (Geo Referenced Utility Benchmarking System), with pilot data for Nairobi Water and Sewerage Company (NCWSC) and IFRA data being key components.

In 2009 Upande also participated in the h2.0 initiative with UN-Habitat, ITC, Water Services Trust Fund and Google.org. Upande developed the h2.0 initiative website, as well as various interactive dashboards for town planners (based around UN-Habitat/Census bureau household survey data) and MajiData.

More recently, Upande has embarked on rural water point mapping work for SNV Development organization, through ERMIS. Key for many of these platforms is the identification of the end user. For the above it is the public at large, as well as town planners and development workers.
