Welcome to our Remote Sensing and GIS Blog.

Find out more about our remote sensing and GIS based solutions such as forestry monitoring, mine monitoring and agricultural monitoring.

Geography is cooler than you think: GIS is changing the world

Whoever you are, you need Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to improve your management schemes and to make smarter decisions. Period. Knowing where things happen matters not only to your business, but also to our livelihood on earth in its most basic form. Geography is cooler than you think: it is shaping the world around us.

Using SMART Technology To Monitor Mines

Using the best satellite imagery technology currently has to offer, Swift Geospatial can assist with cost-effective, time-saving strategies, including disaster prevention. In this article we focus on monitoring for mine management and how our high quality imagery empowers one not only for decision making purposes; but also to detect - with immediate effect - if any risks or triggers are activated as and when they happen.

Smart disaster prevention: monitoring your mine’s Tailing Storage Facility (TSF)

Monitoring your mine’s Tailings Storage Facility (TSF) is not merely a legal requirement, but a life or death responsibility. After all, the horrific (and fairly recent) case studies of TSF mismanagement catastrophes bear witness to the paramount importance thereof. Enter Swift Geospatial’s innovative methodology for TSF monitoring. Using the latest, most streamlined, high resolution and cloud-free satellite imagery technology available to date; time-savvy mining managers may remotely check their tailings dam status on a weekly basis.

5th Anniversary

It is that time of the year again! Yes, Swift Geospatial has turned five years old. However, this year seems different. I believe Swift Geospatial has officially fast-matured into a world class GIS and Remote Sensing company. Admittedly, the journey to get here has indeed had its ups and downs- but with these many invaluable wisdom-gaining lessons have been learnt along the way.

Going Off-Grid: Not Only A Smart Move; But A Sheer Necessity

Going off-the-grid is a trend that is highly relevant with the times we are living in; considering all the carbon emissions and concerning climate change stats there are out there. As South Africans; the first thought which I guarantee comes to mind is to escape the reliance on our crumbling Eskom; but looking further, more than 100 of the Fortune 500 companies have already received significant results by using solar power.
