Simon Hughes, Hatfield Consultants Africa Director (l) and Mr. Abednico Maphuru, Deputy Director of the Department of Surveys and Mapping (r)

In July 2017, Hatfield Consultants Africa signed contracts with the Botswana Department of Surveys, to conduct topographic mapping updates for two lots of sixty 1:50,000 map sheets, in the Ngamiland and Ghanzi Districts, in the north west of the country.

Following standards supplied by the Department, Hatfield will conduct this mapping in four-months, delivering high-quality mapping products that will provide critical mapping information, and contribute to social, environmental and economic development across Botswana.

The topographic mapping products developed by Hatfield under this project will be based upon 50 cm DigitalGlobe Basemap imagery, acquired by the Department in March 2017, using an annual subscription, the first of its kind in the country. 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.
