A systematic review on the role of geographical information systems in monitoring and achieving sustainable development goal 6: Clean water and sanitation

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Growth, which includes 17 Sustainable Development Goals, was approved by the United Nations General Assembly. Several cited study has supported SDG policies in the last five years. Despite initial efforts, the United Nations has stated that the world is not really on target to achieve the majority of SDG goals. The geographic information system has been recognized as a cost-effective method for finding, monitoring, and achieving goals that have a 15-year lifespan. This paper reviews a systematic review of published papers that combined GIS and SDG in their study. Since the 17 targets include 169 goals, it may be more difficult if all of the objectives were addressed. This review focused solely on "SDG 6: Clean water and sanitation" literature. The target 6. 1 received a lot of attention, and the inverse distance interpolation technique from the geostatistic analysis software was widely used in the monitoring phase, according to a systematic review.

Understanding higher education students' developing perceptions of geocapabilities through the creation of story maps with geographical information systems

The quantitative skills of using geographic information systems are often taught in various higher education fields, outside of geocapabilities or geographical disciplinary expertise. This report explores how 27 higher education students' views of geocapabilities changed as they learnedt technical skills of web mapping by investigating real-world problems with ArcGIS StoryMaps, based on scientific evidence and authentic problem solving. However, students found that geographers need curiosity, passion, and admiration for geography, as well as general skills for working and living in places that are not geographically related.

Using geographic information systems to inform the public health response to COVID‐19 and structural racism: The role of place‐based initiatives

The syndemic of COVID19 and structural xronism have particularly harmed Black communities, who have been specifically affected by the syndemic of COVID19 and structural racism. In one predominantly Black neighborhood, the PBI's response was to reveal discrepancies in access to socioeconomic determinants of health among two ethnically segregated groups, determine resident's interests, and measure resource availability in one predominantly Black neighborhood. Using an SDH Index, we found racial ineligibility in access to SDH before COVID 19 (1939). Inequities in access to SDH among the two groups of the two groups existed before COVID1919, according to the results. Following the onset of COVID 19/19, unemployment and food insecurity in the predominantly Black community were higher in comparison to the US population.
