Drone Mapping Services in Africa

Our main goal is provide reliable Drone Mapping technology products, services and solutions that meet our clients' needs at minimal cost.

Drone Survey & Mapping

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) popularly known as Drones have become proven technology in the sphere of Aerial Mapping and Survey. Our Licensed Pilots by KCAA, use Drones or UAVs as well aerial mapping/survey services which are increasingly becoming the go-to solution for many Geospatial professionals and industries. At Orbital Africa, we're at forefront in employing latest drone/UAV technology incorporating SenseFly hardware (drones) and Pix4D software products. Below is a simple workflow of Drone Images/Big Data processing. At Orbital Africa, we also offer Training on Drone/UAV/UAS Mapping encompassing flight planning, flying the drone, data download and processing using software such as Pix4D, Agisoft, Drone Deploy etc.

Drone Flight Planning

Flight Plans

1: Selecting area to be mapped and can be done using the eMotion and DroneDeploy.

Drone/UAV Mapping

Drone Survey

2: Drone or UAV is launched after flight planning to fly and capture the images within AoI defined.

Drone Data Processing

Data Process

3: Employs Pix4D, DroneDeploy & Agisoft among other software to process drone images.


Orbital Africa is the leading Drone, UAV, UAS Mapping and Training Company based in Kenya with branches in Ethiopia, Tanzania, Uganda, south Sudan, Rwanda, Botswana and Africa at large.. We employ a number of best drones e.g. DJI Phantom 4 RTK, eBee SenseFly from various manufacturers across the globe. Several software available in the market for processing drone images and creating orthomosaics and Digital Surface Models (DSMs), Digital Elevation Models (DEMs) etc. include Pix4D, Agisoft among others. Drones for mapping normally fly at an altitude of 100 metres to 300 metres.


Notably, the spatial resolution of the drone images decreases considerably with increase in altitude but the drone is capable of capturing large image scenes. With the drones, one can obtain an image of up to 2cm Spatial Resolution! We also hire, rent or lease all types of drones at affordable rates.
