Measure DHS

The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) has selected the ICF Macro team, including Blue Raster as a substantial subcontractor, to implement the MEASURE Phase III Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS) contract. Blue Raster will update the website and STATcompiler, using ArcGIS Server 9.3.1 and Flex API, to allow widespread access to this data, which will dramatically improve usability and information accessibility.  The mapping application allows users to customize data sets for factors of region, years and household indicator, and then to view the results graphically. This $142 million, five-year contract will serve as the Bureau for Global Health’s primary demographic and health data collection effort. For more information on Measure DHS please visit


Natural Disaster Hotspots – A Global Risk Analysis

Featured in the Nature scientific journal, Blue Raster worked with the World Bank to support the Natural Disaster Hotspots report, which presents a global view of major natural disaster risk hotspots with the goal of aligning resources to areas at highest risk of disaster. It summarizes the results of an interdisciplinary analysis of the location and characteristics of hotspots for six natural hazards – earthquakes, volcanoes, landslides, floods, drought, and cyclones. It combines sub-national population data with economic analysis and past disaster losses to identify areas at relatively high risk of one or more hazards. Blue Raster produced more than 30 case study maps for the report as well as an interactive application.
