AARSE, the African Association of Remote Sensing of the Environment in cooperation with EARSC published an inventory of the African private EO and Geospatial industry. We wish to thank the European Commission and Spacetec Partners for their support to this work. General inventories of organisations involved in remote sensing applications are available for some countries in sub-Saharan Africa. A survey targeting the African private sector involved in EO and geospatial sciences specifically, however, was never done before. This study is the first of its kind on the continent and a beginning to understand how companies in Africa operate, capture their expertise and assess their state and health. AARSE and EARSC have analysed the data of the survey was conducted between February and April 2016. The executive summary and the final report can be downloaded here
