Every technology comes with a suite of requirements dictating where it performs best (e.g., temperature, rainfall, elevation, slope, market accessibility, and linkage to other socioeconomic factors such as household income, gender, and education). By overlaying grid-based geospatial data layers, this tool helps users select refined areas in the target country/region that meet the user-defined criteria and thus have more potential for scalable impact.
