Data and Innovation

QED specializes in using data to create new learnings and provide deeper insights that inspire creative solutions to difficult problems. Our data scientists, programmers, and designers utilize an iterative, human-centered process to co-design and co-create innovative solutions driven by client needs.

As part of QED’s Center for Global Data Visualization (CGDV), our data scientists collaborate with academic institutions and the private sector to provide insights to complex challenges, using data visualization. CGDV also provides a unique platform for collaboration, offering opportunities for training, networking, publishing and professional development for university students. Check out the CGDV Collaborative Platform.

Illustrative Work

  • Data Wrangling: In Uganda, information from Uganda’s Agricultural & Animal Husbandry Census was contained in hard copy format, limiting any effective data analysis. Working with USAID/Uganda under the Learning Contract, we scanned more than 900 census, government reports and other source documents and converted the data into a legible, machine friendly format for easy and efficient analysis.
