General description

Overview of Challenge

5

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

Base maps available are often limited to Google maps.  In parts of East and Central Africa, the landscape can be very fluid over time - river routes can change, communities move, vegetation might change.  What we are using often isn't sufficiently up-to-date, we need more current information to plan to. 

This is particularly important when identifying areas where there might be burial sites, religious areas, important ecological areas etc...

Thematic information requirements

3. Obtain detailed vegetation information,  4. Obtain detailed land-use information,   6. Identify inland water bodies and determine water quality,     10. Fauna and presence and patterns,

7

Nature of the challenge - What effect does this challenge have on operations?

Planning can be inefficient and wasted if required information is not available.  Although all activity requires an on-the-ground scout to be undertaken, the turn-around timetable of this can be greatly enhanced with mapping data of sufficiently high qual

What do you currently do to address this challenge?/ How is this challenge conventionally addressed?

Existing mapping of environmental areas, although this can often be out of date or inaccurate
