Hatfield Consultants Africa Delivers Topographic Mapping Projects

Jan 17, 2018

In July 2017, Hatfield Consultants Africa signed two 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.

On 17th January 2018, at ceremony at the Department, Hatfield delivered all 120 map sheets in hard and soft-copy to an assembled group of stakeholders.

Following standards supplied by the Department, Hatfield is the first Botswana-based company to deliver the specified high-quality mapping products on-time, on-budget, and matching required specifications. These map products provide critical mapping information, which will in turn contribute to social, environmental, and economic development across Botswana.

The topographic mapping products developed by Hatfield under this project are based upon 50-cm DigitalGlobe Basemap imagery, 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.
