We are where the geospatial data and non spatial data are produced, managed and shared according to our quality standards.
Climate Risk Database (CRD)
Recilience Academy’s Climate Risk Database (CRD) is a geospatial data repository that supports research, education and planning, such as disaster-risk management practices. The rich repository of datasets consists of open-access data from industrial training, Tanzania Urban Resilience Program projects, and third parties.
CRD is built on open-solution platform of Geonode, hosted at the University of Turku Geonode.
We curate Climate Risk Database, a open-access repository with a collection of geospatial data on urban resilience and disaster risk management in Tanzania
Data curation skills
We develop and conduct training for the next generation and professional experts to enhance their practical skills and academic understanding of urban challenges. We provide contact learning and online courses for University experts, government officials, University students and other professionals interested in improving their digital data skills.
We also develop digital geospatial data quality and management skills of young professionals and students in universities and partner organizations.
We have collected a repository of useful open-access tools and practices with instructions for geospatial data management. Most of the tools are available through QGIS software, that anyone can download without fees. You can use the tools for data editing, quality assessment and other management practices.
We maintain a list of useful open-access tools suitable for digital data collection, management and analysis. We train students with these tools in the industrial training and courses at Tanzanian universities.
Data Visualisation Challenge
The visualisation competition is for university students interested in developing their digital data visualisation skills. Students learn together and work in groups to create powerful data visualisation solutions for the needs of real world.
In their work, students use data that is shared in Climate Risk Database.
We organize annually Data Visualization Challenge, which gathers enthusiastic students from Tanzanian universities to compete in teams and pitch for their best geospatial data visualization solution.
Data quality standards
Climate Risk Database (CRD) of the Tanzania Resilience Academy shares open datasets related to urban resilience in Tanzania. All datasets shared via CRD follow the data quality standards identified and described on this page. By defining data quality standards, we can assure that the data has high-quality accessibility and usability for the urban resilience community and Tanzania Urban Resilience Program partners.
