Roundtable #4 – Using data for communication
Tuesday, November 6th, 2-3:15PM, Room A
Humanitarian organizations produce and use a large range of data in their daily activities. This year's GeOnG plenaries have allowed the participants to discuss of the need to open this data and share it between organizations in order to increase their efficiency. But the dissemination of this data should not be limited to humanitarian organizations: cloud technologies are also an opportunity to spread the information to beneficiaries, donors or to the public opinion. Yet, this dissemination cannot be efficient if it does not go along with a special communication effort on how this data is presented.
How to get the audience to understand the information, on the form and on the content? Which kind of data and which theme too reach the largest audience?
Which tools and techniques to explain and show the data (in particular visually)?
Which communication channels choose (websites, medias, social networks…), for which audiences (beneficiaries, donors, colleagues inside of your structure)?
