Hatfield Consultants Africa Awarded Imagery Supply Project

Mar 05, 2019

Deputy Director of Surveys and Mapping, Mr Abednico Mapuru, signing the contract between Hatfield Consultants Africa and the Government of Botswana.

In February 2019, Hatfield Consultants Africa (Hatfield) signed a renewal and upgrade contract with the Government of Botswana, to supply the DigitalGlobe Basemap service to the Ministry of Lands, Housing, Water and Sanitation Services. This service is a subscription-based imagery streaming and download service, providing access to 30 cm and 50 cm high resolution imagery for the whole of Botswana from the DigitalGlobe satellite constellation, delivered through a web-browser interface.

The renewal and upgrade were driven by increased use of satellite imagery for decision making throughout key government departments. Satellite imagery is currently used within the Ministry for topographic mapping, critical infrastructure projects, and census preparations. Hatfield is committed to supporting the use of EO data designed to improve the delivery of Government services. The renewal and upgrade contract includes provision of technical support services and training workshops in the use of spatial technologies for sustainable development.

Hatfield is an official partner with DigitalGlobe, providing high-resolution imagery and elevation products and services to public, private, and geo-intelligence clients across southern Africa, including Botswana, Namibia and Zimbabwe. Hatfield is committed to providing state of the art mapping and geospatial solutions to its clients, appropriate to the market dynamics in Botswana, and across the SADC region.
