GAF moves on in providing key geo-information products in support of urban development programmes

GAF and partners successfully complete the first phase of the Project on "Earth Observation for Sustainable Development - Urban Development" and now are been awarded the contract for phase 2.

In phase 1 more than 200 geo-information products based on Earth observation for in total 16 Cities have been produced and have been provided to both users of the Multi-Lateral Development Banks and counterpart city authorities. In particular, all the products reached a high quality and overall accuracies to the full satisfaction of clients and users.

Asset Monitoring with top notch technologies. What is the Status of my Investment? Is the Project Development Plan on Schedule?

When big corporates or financing organisations like Banks have to monitor the progress of a major infrastructure development project somewhere on the globe, space technology allows now something really astonishing: On virtually every place on the globe and without any field activity 3D visualizations displaying detailed surface characteristics can be generated. Using a powerful analysis-, visualization and software package, any investor, owner, or manager is able to follow project progress in short intervals down to days. Due to recent developments in resolution, quality and collection capabilities of today’s optical satellite systems together with advances in computer vision, elevation models down to 30cm resolution can be created and even very small objects can be observed, measured and monitored.

Crucial Milestone reached for the establishment of a Mineral Cadastre System in Tadjikistan

Based on its 20 year experience in designing and implementing mineral cadastre systems for jurisdictions across the globe, GAF has been tasked to take care of the implementation of a modern mining cadastre in the Republic of Tadjikistan. Following a thorough analysis of the administrative preconditions, the mineral law and the regulatory framework, the GAF team has established cadastral procedures following international best practice. Based on this achievement, a suitable open source computerized platform has been designed, developed and now implemented enabling the transparent management of licenses and tender processes. The solution implemented is based on the proven eMC+ environment.
