Data from around the world in one simple platform
Modernize your data collection and enhance evidence-based decision-making
Scale Your Needs Assessments
Rapidly conduct quantitative multi-sector needs assessments, launch sector-specific data collection based on the most pressing needs, and source observational data around key services, such as medical supply availability.
Monitor Migration and Displacement
Map and validate informal population settlements and assess their needs, segment our Contributor population by displacement status and survey them directly, and survey host communities to understand the impact of displacement.
Enhance Market Monitoring
Monitor the availability of food and staple goods at a high frequency; source pricing data in a manner that is compliant with weights, measures, and food type standards; and interview market actors to enrich pricing data with local perspectives.
Remotely Conduct Third Party Monitoring
Monitor activity implementation using citizens living in affected areas, give a voice to affected populations at the design and implementation stages, and monitor local markets for diverted aid.
A new kind of data collection that allows you to make better decisions, faster.
Premise quickly transforms your questions—from the most basic to the most challenging—into tasks. Based on your specific needs, we create a data acquisition campaign to crowdsource the answers.
Informal settlement identification and basic services assessment in Colombia
Under their USAID-funded project, iMMAP’s Colombia Country Office uses the Premise Platform to validate the existence of informal Venezuelan settlements in Colombia that were identified through satellite imagery. Once validated, Premise contributors assess the availability of basic WASH infrastructure in the settlements.
