Geocoded Datasets

Geocoded Datasets

Geocoding aid, or mapping the precise locations of aid activities at the sub-national level, increases aid transparency by making it easier for governments, donors, and citizens to visualize precisely where funding is directed. AidData has collaborated with the World Bank Institute, African Development Bank, Malawi Ministry of Finance, and Climate Change and African Political Stability Program (CCAPS) at the University of Texas at Austin to map projects from over 30 donors in Malawi and World Bank/African Development Bank projects in up to 144 countries. This section includes several geocoded activity-level donor datasets.

Forthcoming Geocoded Datasets

Over the course of the next several months, AidData will publish new and updated geocoded datasets to this webpage. These datasets will include:​

  • An expansion of the World Bank IBRD-IDA dataset to include 1995-2014

  • A 1.0 version of Iraq's aid information management system (AIMS) dataset

  • A 1.0 version for Nigeria's aid information management system (AIMS) dataset
