GIS and Remote Sensing Studies

Engineering survey, GIS and Remote Sensing are integral techniques of our engineering and non engineering studies. Application of these techniques ensures two advantages which include (i) simplification of large scale studies and (ii) assurances of our designs regardless of scale and complexity. Some of the projects we have undertaken in this category are presented below.

As associate consultant on the study of the flood preparedness information and flood forecasting model for the Songwe Trans boundary river basin project in Tanzania and Malawi.

The analysis included heavy application of GIS  to analyse, and map flooded zone, social and agricultural activities, analysis of weather information (rainfall data, discharge data, sedimentation, water quality etc) in order to identify the flood window and the flood occurrence frequency, identification of possible water supply infrastructure, identification of agricultural practice which leads to sediment into the river and the mitigations measures, development of flood preparedness indicators, Training of community members on indicators of floods in the study area, integrated water resource management, and on how to communicate the floods.
