Mapping of Agricultural Expansion for the Child Future Africa Orphanage Farm

Dec 13, 2010

We undertook pro bono work for the Child Future Africa Foundation to map recent agricultural expansion on their Mount Darwin Orpharm, which provides a family home combined with agricultural activity to a number of HIV/Aids orphans. We used a very high resolution panchromatic satellite image from the WorldView-1 satellite to produce a map that clearly shows the recent addition of new agricultural fields. This map will assist the CFA Foundation with fundraising activities for further non-profit improvement and expansion of the orphanage. The satellite data was kindly donated by European Space Imaging through Infoterra.
