Drones help communities map flood risk in Dar es Salaam slums

4 Jan 2017, TRF

Using drones, city authorities in Dar es Salaam are drawing up plans to protect and assist suburbs at risk of flooding. With the World Bank and other partners, including the Red Cross and the Open Geospatial Consortium, they plot roads, streams and flood plains using drones, thereby helping communities in slums create accurate maps of their localities.
