Upande has recently further expanded its frontiers by taking on a project in Nigeria together with Benjamin Knight & Associates and the Ministry of Lands of Enugu State government. The project dubbed 'Enugu Virtual Streets' not only gives panoramic interactive navigation of the streets of Enugu, but also gives access to thousands of POIs (points of interest), land marks, business listings, etc. collected through partner company Global Geomatics. This data will be made accessible through a website and a series of apps for platforms including Android, iPhone/iPad and BlackBerry as well as through SMS.
Upande has collected hundreds of panoramic scenes through sister company Kontent's 360tours product. Some panoramas were captured from the air using UAV technology. Upande is also processing a detailed orthophoto production for the entire metropolis area using UAV technology. More information on the partners involved, the apps developed and links will be posted after the launch early next year.
