Hatfield Consultants Africa

Hatfield Consultants Africa has helped the National Mapping Survey of Botswana keep their map series up-to-date. Despite Botswana being a country severely impacted by budget constraints, Hatfield helped their customer overcome their challenges by updating the map series in sections. This was done by ordering high resolution imagery in line with budgetary cycles and introducing DigitalGlobe Global Basemap to provide Botswana the ability to conduct nationwide map updates. Flexible licensing also allowed the capture of demographic information for projects such as rural electrification, election mapping, water supply and housing.
