Human Settlement Mapping

GEOTERRAIMAGE offers specialist services ranging from country wide settlement mapping to detailed urban residential infrastructure mapping. Human Settlement Mapping is a critical planning tool in a variety of domains. GEOTERRAIMAGE has provided data and services in support of census surveys, infrastructure and service planning, market research applications and demographic studies to name a few. Temporal spatial data provides an exceptional insight into settlement change and urban growth patterns over time, indicating specifically the transformation of areas where human settlement takes place, as well as population density changes. This offers a distinctive opportunity to describe the spatial effects of urbanisation and densification over time.

GEOTERRAIMAGE provides human settlement mapping solutions and custom products as well as an off-the-shelf data product called Growth Indicator©™, which presents unique insights into extensification (outward expansion of settlements), densification and settlement decline in the major metropolitan regions of South Africa.

Another ground breaking solution has been developed to depict the location and extent of dense and scattered regions for most all countries across Africa. This human settlement data product is linked to the latest population estimates and has been extrapolated to provide wall-to-wall country settlement distribution data per administrative area within each African country.

Popular domains where human settlement mapping is adding value:

  • Municipal planning departments
  • Government departments such as housing, human settlement, environment, rural development & land reform, trade and industry etc.
  • National & Provincial Planning Commission
  • Major commercial enterprises
  • Telecommunications planning & development
  • Infrastructure development organisation
  • Transport & Logistics Planners
  • Electricity Providers
  • Public Safety & disaster management
  • Millennium Development projects
  • Water use requirements & resource demand strategies
  • Growth and development strategies
...And much more!

The use of quality geo-referenced demographic data adds value to a wide spectrum of decision processes every day. Time, cost and resource savings are marked when geo-spatial solutions are implemented in the early stages of development and prevention planning.
