Africa Bees - Geonode business portal for Drone Mapping in Africa

Justin Saunders

Africa Bees was hatched at FOSS4G 2018 in Tanzania! The power of drones and the demand for more detailed mapping in Africa has boomed in many sectors such as development, construction, flood prevention, humanitarian response and environmental safe guarding. Based on open source Geonode servers and connecting QGIS clients a platform is now available for drone pilots in Africa to be empowered and be part of a community that can capture and contribute imagery, 3D mapping and elevation (DSM, DTM and Point Cloud) data for a wider community. Welcome to the hive!
