What: UAV data collection in Kenya – Kajiado

Where: Mailua, Kajiado

When: 7 – 8 March, 2018

Who: Technical University of Kenya (TUK), Hansa Luftbild Münster (HL), University of Twente (ITC)


After being patient for over one year, the Kenya Civil Aviation Authority (KCAA) approved TUK’s request to receive a special flight permission for our study site in Mailua, Kajiado. ITC, HL and TUK have joint their efforts to make the first its4land UAV flight possible! In the countryside of Mailua, the its4land UAV captured more than 2500 images which show an area of 260ha of the subdivided group ranches from Mailua. But this is only the launch of a busy data collection period in Kenya – more to come from Kisumu soon!
