JARO Consultancy has been involved in a range of collaborative projects where the main product has been an atlas or profile of a country or region. For many of these, additional outputs such as the key datasets, interactive online maps, booklets or posters are also available. We can handle all aspects from field-based research; stakeholder consultation; data collection, analysis and presentation; map production; writing and editing text; layout and design of the final print-ready books and associated products; to the supervision of commercial printing.
We develop customised websites for a range of purposes and organisations. Most of these have been for Namibian environmental organisations and projects, while a few are for commercial companies and enterprises. They include sites with interactive mapping and graphing functionality, members'-only sections, calendars and online booking systems, forums and blogs, dual languages and more. A sample of these is shown here.
Much of our support work to environmental organisations involves the development of customised tools for data management and analyses. This includes aspects such as DISTANCE analysis of game count data, compilation of multiple data sets for setting of offtake quotas, support tools for monitoring and management of conservancy resources and income, tools for the monitoring of sensitive species and tools to assist with various aspects of project management. A few examples are given below.
Support work to environmental organisations includes production of specific components such as maps, figures and charts for publications. A few examples are:
