GAF AG to establish the new Mining Cadastre in Chad

After prevailing against international competition in the tendering process, GAF has been awarded the contract to set-up a reliable and efficient mining cadastre system in Chad. This includes the provision of institutional strengthening measures and capacity building regarding the management of mining titles both centrally and at the local level. In the project, GAF will integrate its leading platform for cadastral solutions, eMC+, which will be customised to suit the needs of the Ministry of Mines, Development of Industry and Commerce and Promotion of Private Sector (MMDICPSP) and its agencies.  An important factor for the long-term sustainability of the project is the availability of the system’s source code. 

GAF AG is participating at the Smart City Expo World Congress

Smart City
Expo World Congress
19-21 November 2019
Barcelona

GAF AG joined the Smart City Expo World Congress from the 19th until the 21th of November 2019 in Barcelona, Spain. The Expo was a global event with around 24 000 visitors from 146 countries. This mega event was dedicated to create a better future for cities and their citizens worldwide by promoting social innovation, establishing partnerships and identifying business opportunities.

GAF AG was not only presenting the GAF Multi-Stereo Elevation Suite and its 3D visualisation in the GAFmap ® software as a part of the Bavarian Delegation, but was also representing the ESA EO4SD-Urban project at the ESA booth.

GAF AG has successfully completed a pilot project for the monitoring of agricultural parcels

GAF AG has successfully completed a pilot project for the monitoring of agricultural parcels for the Bavarian State Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Forestry (StMELF), as part of CAP2020.

The Company has developed and validated an automatic monitoring approach for agricultural parcels using satellite data. This aims to ease the burden of on-the-spot-checks for agricultural administrations. Twelve different monitoring scenarios were automatically evaluated, using high resolution open access earth observation data collected by the Sentinel-1 and Sentinel-2 satellite constellation. The potential of very high resolution PLANETSCOPE data for overcoming constraints in monitoring smaller parcels was also investigated in this project.

Study Trip for Delegation from Mozambique

In the context of the Project “Consultancy Service for Design, Development and Implementation of a National lntegrated Water Resources Management Information System” a workshop was performed by GAF. The workshop included training on integrated water resource management, planning and system development as well as on data processing and use of EO products and services and 3- D visualisation.

The Project is funded by World Bank and is managed by the consortium of GAF AG, as lead and AHT GROUP AG.

Bridging the digital divide

GAF AG developed an internet browser based Land Cover Mapping Tool with support from the European Space Agency (ESA), which fully utilises the high temporal resolution of Copernicus Sentinel-2 satellite data without the need of local data storage and processing.

A cloud computing backend enables users to remotely access and process large data volumes for their mapping task. The tool was successfully demonstrated during a 3 day workshop held in Malawi, which experiences the challenge of slow and unstable internet connection common in many developing countries. Together with staff members of the Department of Forestry (DoF), several sites in Malawi were mapped. The integration of multiple Sentinel-2 image acquisitions and the derivation of statistical measures thereof helped to overcome challenges in mapping tropical dry forest.

GAF to upgrade the computerized mining cadastre system in Nigeria

In the framework of the “Mineral Sector Support for Economic Diversification Project” financed by World Bank a delegation from the Nigerian Mining Cadastre Office visited GAF for two weeks. Main objective was to become familiar with the latest developments in digital mining cadastres eMC+ as well as in the application of remote sensing and geo-information technologies for mining governance.

The study trip included a visit to the Bavarian Mining Authority and to a salt mine in the Bavarian Alps.
