Natural Resources Super-Industry at Esri Eastern Africa has been divided into five industries namely: Agriculture, Archaeology & Conservation, Environmental Management, Mining & Petroleum and Water & Atmosphere. At the wake of social and economic developments, there exist remarkable challenges in combating a changing climate and global human population increase. Resource managers, biologists, botanists, ecologists, environmental regulators, hydrologists, planners, miners, petroleum engineers, foresters, and farmers in organizations and companies in the natural resource sector, rely on GIS for resource mapping, visualization and analysis of data to aide in making informed decisions and workforce optimization.


 

Agriculture

Esri Eastern Africa has COTS solution for precision farming, and crop suitability application that has been run and tested by Crop Nutrition Laboratories and Kenya Agricultural and Livestock Research Organization. On Forestry, the Green Belt Movement is working on using our technology to map and monitor reforestation efforts in the Aberdares region. On meteorology, The Inter-governmental Authority on Development Climate Prediction and Application Center (ICPAC) is also using our technology in producing information products based on climatic data which is shared across all the member countries.

Environmental Conservation

Esri Eastern Africa has customized solutions geared towards habitat monitoring and anti-poaching. The system create an efficient data collection, storage, analysis and visualization platform, monitor ranger movement and improve on data collection accuracy of incidents and response mechanisms, and protecting the wildlife, the forest habitat and the communities adjacent to the Parks. Successful implementers of this solution are Tanzania National Parks and Rhino Ark Charitable Trust (working with KWS).

Mining and Petroleum

we offer solutions in exploration and production of minerals that guarantee efficient system that support operations. Together with our partner solutions, we are able to deliver a proper mining workflow for both public and private investors and interested community stakeholders. The leaders in this industry using our solutions is: Geological survey of Tanzania, Ministry of Mining (Kenya), Barrick Gold Corporation, Swala Energy among others.

Archaeology

The combination of GIS and archaeology has been considered a perfect match, since archaeology often involves the study of the spatial dimension of human behavior over time, and all archaeology carries a spatial component. Since archaeology looks at the unfolding of historical events through geography, time and culture, the results of archaeological studies are rich in spatial information. GIS is adept at processing these large volumes of data, especially that which is geographically referenced. It is a cost effective, accurate and fast tool.
