Until now, Sub-Saharan Africa has been operating without consistent access to accurate information about their geography – resulting in inefficiencies and inaccuracies in decision making across the continent. This project will create a comprehensive digital map including an estimated 342 million buildings, 3.8 million linear kilometres of roads and 582 million hectares of forests
By creating the first complete digital map of key features across all of Sub-Saharan Africa, this initiative will empower governments, NGOs and businesses to optimize their efforts on the ground, gaining insights like never before. The digital map will be used to optimize planning and deployment of renewable energy infrastructure, monitoring and policing of deforestation, and the distribution of vaccines.
