Building Footprints for urban management

GeoGecko, 2016
Area Urban Development Medium Other Type Research

We mapped each of the 399,388 buildings in the city. We then linked this up to other datasets such as financial services, health and education to understand where are the gaps and saturation areas.

Attached are two maps. One shows the expansion of a slum over a twenty year period. The second shows the building coloured according to size and the third shows access to mobile money agents around the city.
