Using drones to map land in Tanzania, Uhurulabs ensures the accurate measurement of land and improves possibilities for securing people’s land rights.
Uhurulabs maps land in Tanzania using drones to provide accurate and effective aerial surveys. Most people in the country have no formal documentation to prove they own their land. This leaves them at risk of losing their land to infrastructure, tourism, and development projects. Acquiring formal documentation for land rights contributes towards better landownership security, allows landowners to obtain bank loans, and helps governments to tax owners correctly. Using drones for mapping in Africa, where only about 30% of the land has been mapped, will enable people to rightfully claim rights over their land.
