TWIGA

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

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

TWIGA GNSS-NET

Delivery of GNSS observations collected by the TWIGA low-cost GNSS network/s

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
