ESRI recognizes NBS amongst other international organisations with Special Achievement in GIS Award 2018

The Special Achievement in GIS (SAG) Award ceremony is held at the annual Esri User Conference. Jack Dangermond, president and founder of Esri, personally selects recipients and presides over the ceremony. As NBS sets new precedents throughout the GIS community with the implementation of The Nigeria Assets Decision Support System (NADSS).

The Nigeria Assets Decision Support System (NADSS) is a database of Nigeria’s human capital, agricultural, and infrastructure resources upon which modelling functionality has been built. The database is based on a Geographic Information System (GIS) and when completed will be made accessible via a web-portal. It will be used to critically evaluate complex systems and alternative approaches and analyse data in order to improve economic planning and decision-making on infrastructure investments.

Business Problem Solved

NADSS will be used to model different scenarios, identify key investments that will have significant positive impact for Nigerians, and provide informed guidance on policy formulation, economic planning and decision-making on capital budget investments
