Remote Sensing

Development and planning initiatives have a spatial component that describe proposed uses, actions and implementation and often the constraints within which development can occur. Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Remote Sensing help to ensure that development and planning initiatives are adequately researched, described, and presented to our clients in a meaningful way that adds value to overall projects.

In addition to development and planning initiatives, GIS and Remote Sensing techniques are used by EcoAfrica to detect, analyse, and monitor changes though time, such as land use change which encompasses various types of land use including vegetation (invasive species and indigenous endangered species monitoring), species migration (identification of habitats and breeding areas), coastal erosion, watershed and drainage basin analysis, and urbanisation (demographics) amongst others. 

EcoAfrica’s experience in utilising GIS and Remote Sensing techniques is extensive and covers a broad range of topics such as conservation and development of World Heritage Sites, the demarcation and design of Protected Areas, and in rural and urban planning and development.

GIS and Remote Sensing software and hardware is used by skilled professionals to create comprehensive maps that can easily be disseminated and understood by all our clients and stakeholders regardless of their level of expertise, ultimately enabling decision makers to make informed decisions.

Our team works with clients to:

  • Create and interpret Raster and Vector data for topographical modelling and analyses
  • Translate geospatial concepts into maps that are easily understood by all stakeholders
  • Empower communities through participative GIS training and mapping
  • Contribute to heritage preservation through cultural landscape mapping
  • Create and interpret Raster data for topographical modelling and analysis
  • Develop natural and cultural layers for conservation and development plans
  • Apply GIS and Remote Sensing to participative land-use planning
  • Design and manage GIS data inventories for our own use and that of our clients
  • Produce printer-friendly and digital-friendly versions of maps that can easily be disseminated

Making decisions based on geography is basic to human thinking. By understanding geography and people’s relationship to location, we can make informed decisions on how we use our Planet.
