This week, Craig talks to Andrew Fournet, Innovation Lead at Astrosat – a company that uses satellite and ground data to create maps of Scotland such as maps of fuel poverty or access to transport. Andrew talks about the importance of accurate data in policy development and in tracking the effectiveness of policy and introduces Astrosat’s new initiative Poverty Plus – a free tool for registered charities that may allow them to find communities in Scotland who need their help.

If you’d like more information about Poverty Plus or if you’d like to sign your charity up to it, you can do so here.
If you haven’t yet filled in your Scottish Census form please do so as soon as possible here.
