Participants were taught how to enhance their mapping features, as LaoInfo is being used for data dissemination and analysis. For instance, they were trained on ways to integrate feature maps (e.g. rail networks, roads, rivers, hospitals, schools and health centres) into DevInfo, as they provide critical information in addition to the administrative boundary maps.
LSB has also been developing national and regional profiles using DevInfo as a way to provide a quick real-time snapshot of the situation of a location based on a set of predefined indicators. The DSG data division provided an orientation on the importance of profiles as well as learning how to generate profiles, using the LaoInfo database to create a sample one.
