Modelling income poverty in the Geographic Targeting Geo-Information System

    Abstract

    Halving world extreme poverty by year 2015 has been made the first and most prominent of the 8 United Nations' Millennium Development Goals (MDG) thus making the issue of poverty reduction a global challenge. Harnessing the potential of GIS-based ICTs for poverty reduction is imperative. As spatial determinants are being considered essential in understanding poverty, there is an increasing use of GIS in handling poverty. However, the use of GIS is raising fundamental and methodological issues in relation to the spatial modelling of poverty and the limitations of GIS as a tool for use in all aspects of poverty reduction. In modelling poverty assessment, for instance, GIS software has no functionality for Econometric and Anthropometric measurement of poverty. Hence, the need to extend GIS functionalities. This paper describes the modelling of income poverty, within the framework of the Geographic Targeting Geo-Information System (GTGIS) for poverty management. Income poverty is modelled as a part of the Poverty Assessment Module, which is based on object-oriented technology. Using a Rapid Application Development approach, the Unified Modelling Language (UML) is used for system design.
