General description

Overview of Challenge

5

What is the nature of the challenge? (What is not adequately addressed at present?)

Existing mapping in many regions (especially Central / Eastern Africa) is very out of date.  O&G operators thus have a need for up-to-date baseline maps, onto which detailed information can be plotted.

In tropical regions that are frequently cloud covered, aerial surveys are used.  However, for some countries, it is troublesome, bureaucratic and slow to get permissions to undertake these.  For example, in DRC, permission is needed from survey department, transport authority, and others.  A way to get round this would be of great use.
