Services

Upande's services are specialized around mapping applications or Geographic Information Systems (GIS). A GIS typically consists of 5 parts as outlined in the diagram below, namely: People/Methods & Procedures, Hardware/Software and Data.

For simplification purposes, we reduce these 5 parts into 3: Data, Tools and Expertise.

Data

We all have an immense need for data these days. Whether it is BIG DATA or not. Whether it is already in analogue form or not. Whether it can be mapped or not. Whether... we have to source it or go get it ourselves. Once we have it, we need to make sure it becomes information that empowers us or our clients to act upon it, to query it, visualize it.

Tools

The rate at which software development is currently developing is daunting. Open Source alternatives are abound and a viable option in many enterprise settings.

How do you ensure a lower Total Cost of Ownership (TOC) and choose and develop tools that are scalable, interoperable and future ready? Our team of experts is there to assist you in making the right choices.

Expertise

Despite rapid advances in automation and machine learning, human skillset and actions will remain core of any GIS system in the next few years. 

Knowledge and experience in your GIS staff are required at all levels, from enumerators to analysts to database managers to project managers. 

GIS exposure and expertise starts at the University level in many cases. Having said that, technology is advancing at such a rapid rate that lecturers and professors ideally have to revisit their curriculum every year. Needless to say there is always a lag in what they are able to offer and on what the latest developments are.

Upande prides itself in working with cutting edge technology in its national and international projects. As a result, we are able to offer consultancy or training in some of the latest technologies available.

"Upande is well known globally for their cutting edge technological solutions to common problems. They have seamlessly integrated map overlay data on schools, restaurants, banks into our Anza.co.ke real estate platform. Their world class standard is evident in all their work and they don't stop until they have delivered what was envisaged at the onset.
