Land Rights for Informal Settlements, Dar es Salaam

This video showcases our big idea of how to use low cost, high precision dual-frequency GPS to do real-time kinematics surveying in Dar es Salaam Tanzania.

When the city of Dar es Salaam is expanding towards 10 million people before 2030, and 70% of the city's residents live in informal settlements, there is a great need for securing land tenure.

We're seeking to spark a conversation about this through the Ethical GEO Initiative – a challenge from the American Geographical Society. We believe it can have a much broader impact, considering that throughout the developing world almost a billion people live without legal titles to their land.

We are proposing to do a pilot project to test the capabilities – for more information check out the proposal on GitHub:
