Geospatial technologies enable the mapping and analysis of refugee movements, providing valuable insights into migration patterns, routes, and hotspots. By leveraging Geographic Information Systems (GIS), humanitarian organizations can gain a better understanding of the journeys undertaken by refugees. This knowledge helps identify high-risk areas, plan efficient evacuation routes, and allocate resources effectively to provide timely assistance. An example of this is provided by the UNIDO research project “Observatory on Smuggling of Migrants,” which integrates digital maps – configured by gisAction – that track migrant routes based on data collected in the field and data provided by institutions. The work, of great importance in preventing smuggling of migrants, is freely accessible.
