Geospatial Technology To mitigate COVID-19

Mapping the location history of COVID-19 patients is critical in identifying areas that have been exposed to the virus.

Through the use of the geolocation data of positively-tested patients, COVID-19 hotspots can be identified even before cases are confirmed, allowing for early intervention by public health authorities and hence helping the government in making decisions and at the end minimising the cost of fighting this pandemic .

GEOSPATIAL ENGINEERING STUDENTS CARRYING OUT TOPOGRAPHICAL MAPPING USING UAV

The department of Geospatial and Space Technology ,University of Nairobi emblaces the new technology of mapping.This has exposed students to the rapidly growing technologies in the field of Geospatial .With a drone, surveyors can capture many more topographic data points, hence more accurate volume measurements.
