Geosense has recently captured high resolution aerial photography for the Overstrand Municipality. The captured data will be used across all municipal functions including Valuations, Technical Services/ Infrastructure section and the Disaster Management requirements, enabling the municipality to provide services to both its rural and urban community, in a more effective manner.
Overstrand Municipality is a local municipality in the Western Cape province of South Africa. Covering almost 1708 square kilometres it locatedd along the Atlantic coast between Cape Town and Cape Agulhas, within the Overberg District Municipality.
Unfortunately, the Overstrand region was recently affected by wildfires that erupted on New Year’s Eve in surrounding areas, providing quite a challenge for our flight crew with regards to massive smoke in the area, not helped by volatile weather conditions.
However due our flexible approach and with support from crew at the military base in Overstrand and Cape Town Air Traffic Control, high resolution aerial imagery was successfully captured on time, we even surveyed on Christmas day!
Geosense have undertaken numerous imagery, orthophoto, oblique photo, LiDAR and Remote Sensing projects in South Africa over the last 15 years. From our A3 ultra large format digital camera to our state of the art Digital Ultracam equipment, we have the right tools in the form of hardware, for aerial survey projects. Add in our latest generation software and processing facilities, and we are able to complete survey projects professionally and on time. Geosense has the technical knowledge and the local insight of municipal requirements from years of experience, therefore requirements and key areas of project are understood in advance, allowing us to add value and assist in various other areas as required.
