Tanzania: East View Cartographic (EVC) signed digital right agreement with the national mapping agency of Tanzania, Ministry of Lands in Dar-es-Salaam. Under this agreement, the EVC became an official reseller of paper and digital geospatial products produced by the national mapping agency of Tanzania.
Over the past five years, EVC embarked on an aggressive mission to acquire the world’s largest commercially-available collection of locally produced cartographic and GIS data from all of the countries of the world with a particular focus on Africa nations. Tanzania now accompanies EVC’s similar success in Botswana, Rwanda, Madagascar, Kenya, and South Africa.
According to Kent Lee, CEO of EVC, “Geospatial data is being produced on a daily basis at staggering rates. Commercial satellites, National Mapping Agencies and global corporations produce terabytes daily. EVC exists to know what kind of geospatial data is available over any area of interest on the planet. Knowing what data is available is valuable in its own right, but being able to deliver the data while adhering to data licensing provisions is really where EVC shines and provides value to thousands of entities each year. This new relationship with Tanzania continues our commitment to being the place to come to find geospatial data from around the globe.”
