Transforming Water, Weather, and Climate Information through In Situ observations for Geo-Services in AFRICA

TWIGA is funded through the EU Horizon-2020 program under grant agreement #776691

Project Overview

An overview of the EU H2020 TWIGA project. This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under grant agreement No.776691. The views expressed here do not represent the view of the European Commission but the authors of the video.

Our Objective

Provide currently unavailable geo-information on weather, water, and climate for sub-Saharan Africa by enhancing satellite-based geo-data with innovative in-situ sensors and developing related information services that answer the needs of African stakeholders and the GEOSS community.

Our Services

How humid is my environment?

For phytosanitary services, it is often necessary to know how humid one's environment is.

Solar Energy Prediction

By extrapolating cloud movements, it may be possible to develop a short-term prediction for the amount of solar radiation reaching the surface


Delivery of GNSS observations collected by the TWIGA low-cost GNSS networks

Plastic accumulation monitor

Urban drainage networks in Africa tend to clog at bottlenecks with discarded plastic. A camera will take regular pictures and transform the image into a simple measure of accumulation.

Flood mapping

Mapping open water floods + vegetated flooded areas, combining Sat. RS with UAV. Countries: Kenya and Ghana. Products: River cross-sections and DEM + Flood map + Training

Crop detection and condition monitoring

Crop detection, crop stress monitoring using flying sensors, NIR, NDVI, early detection, UAV. Countries: Kenya and Ghana. Products: NDVI maps, crop classification maps
