GAF AG to strengthen Mines Inspection Department in Nigeria

After international competition coming out on top, a GAF led consortium has been awarded the contract to strengthen the capacities of the Mines Inspection Department (MID) of the Ministry of Mines and Steel Development (MMSD) in Abuja, Nigeria.

The project will assist the MID to secure and control government revenues and legal obligations of the mine title owners and operators. One focus of the project is the inspection of artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM) activities.

Cloud solutions for GAFs highly automated evaluation of satellite data for monitoring the complete agricultural areas of two Federal States in Germany

GAF AG has been again awarded contracts for the highly automated evaluation of satellite data for the monitoring of agricultural areas. The services have been extended to cover whole area of federal States. GAF will realize the entire process chain on the C-DIAS Platform Mundi Web Services as cloud solution, which offers new possibilities of processing, data storage volume and distribution.

GAF will be using a large quantity of high-resolution satellite data from the Sentinels 1 and 2, as well as Planet Scope data to check smaller plots.

The project’s objective will be the rapid, accurate and fully automated verification of numerous crop types and the compliance with agri-environmental and climate measures within the framework of the modernisation and simplification of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) in the EU for the awarding of subsidies.

The new European standard in Copernicus Land Monitoring for the coming decade: CLC+ Backbone has been kicked off

This unique product will constitute a key element in monitoring the European Green Deal and strengthen Europe’s position as a global leader in tackling climate change issues.

Feels like home at work - #likehomeatwork

Greetings from our GAF Mobile Space. Most of us have safely landed there. We grabbed our gear, switched on our communication devices and beamed at the first sight of another GAF-human on our screens.

Yes, „we are fully operational“.

Completely independent from any company-dock-in, we manage daily to deal with familiar data- and Earth Observation challenges.

Entry into our GAF Logbook:

„We find it exciting to see how new conditions change our everyday work. For the moment and to this extent they are of course limited to the duration of this emergency situation.

But they certainly provide an excellent basis for further modernization and flexibilization of our work environment for the time thereafter. We take this positive approach together“
