Geomob Taarifa


View more presentations from Mark Iliffe
Taarifa has been going from strength to strength, from pilots in Uganda and Zimbabwe, to talk about going to Senegal and others. As such building awareness in the wider geospatial community is an important step, not just to pull in developers to the project, but raising awareness of the project to a wider audience. Broadly the presentation framed the point that geospatial data is now available (or is coming) for developing nations, therefore we should position our efforts to understanding what platforms and services should be built on-top of this new infrastructure, while continuing to build the basemap. I believe that Taarifa represents one of those platforms, and its future’s bright.
