Digital Earth Africa
Digital Earth Africa exists to improve the lives of people across the African continent by translating Earth observations into insights that will support sustainable development.
The Digital Earth Africa platform and services enable African governments, industry and decision makers to track changes across the continent in unprecedented detail. This provides valuable insights for better decision making across many areas, including flooding, drought, soil and coastal erosion, agriculture, forest cover, land use and land cover change, water availability and quality, and changes to human settlements.
