Data Use Guides are tools that support hands-on work with a specific type of data(e.g. MAP, Early Warning System). All Data Use Guides will have content that is organized around three steps:

1. Understand the data (i.e., what is it)

2. Access the data (i.e., where can I find it)

3. Analyze the data (i.e., how should I use it)

New guides will be available periodically.  Please click on the links below to explore existing guides.  If you have any general questions about the guides, please contact your Data Strategist.

Questions in these guides are designed to be used with the Data Use Protocol or the Revised Data Use Protocol with Reflect and Adjust steps.
