The DART was developed by JIPS – the Joint IDP Profiling Service –
in partnership with web developers and designers from SpatialDev.
It is a web-based data management system that allows users to explore profiling data online.
Through the DART, you can explore, analyse and visualise displacement data collected through
collaborative profiling exercises supported by JIPS.
Aim: Improve access to profiling data, and enable users to analyse and share the results according
to their different areas of interest.
More specifically, the DART aims to:
- Provide national and global level decision makers with a tool to easily access profiling data
- Facilitate analysis and reporting of profiling data collected in displacement situations
- Promote field-to-field collaboration to ensure that profiling data is shared and used effectively
- Mainstream best practices in terms of data analysis and visualisation
The DART is most useful for humanitarian, development and government actors in countries affected by
internal displacement. In particular, programme managers and policy makers can benefit from the easy
and timely access to population data for evidence-based advocacy, programming and policy-making.
The future of the DART
The DART team is constantly working to make the user experience easier and smoother by expanding the DART’s functionalities.
New profiling datasets will be uploaded by JIPS on a regular basis. Over the upcoming year JIPS will also work on new features,
- Improved mapping of profiling data, allowing to export and share your maps
- Improved reporting functionalities and dashboard creation
- Further customisation of charts, including color palettes
- Cross-compare indicators from several datasets
- Combine quantitative and qualitative data for analysis and visualisation
- Ability for users to upload own datasets and explore, analyse and visualise through the DART
- Connecting the DART to existing (mobile) data collection systems
JIPS is interested in supporting the analysis and dissemination of profiling data from other
agencies as well. If you have any questions, or if you would like to make suggestions on how
to improve the DART, please contact the JIPS Information Management (IM) team,
