The 2011 Liberian Waterpoint mapping project has created a digital map and inventory of all safe waterpoints in Liberia – more than 10,000 in total. The resulting map not only shows the location of every safe waterpoint, but also provides detailed information on each.
The project was supervised by the Ministry of Public Works with support from the World Bank’s Water and Sanitation Program, UNICEF, CHF/USAID, the Liberian WASH Consortium as well as LISGIS and the Ministry of Health.

The 2011 Waterpoint Mapping project was carried out using smartphone-based survey software Akvo FLOW. Akvo FLOW is a software tool that collects, manages, analyses and displays geographically referenced monitoring and evaluation data using mobile phones. It lets users create simple or complex surveys on any topic. From 2013, the system is being used to update the water point information.
