Map Africa 2010, which will be held on 23- 25 November 2010 at Cape Town aims to look into many aspects of this technology in building the continent and highlight the significant role that geospatial technologies hold in serving the various building blocks of a nation/continent. The conference intends to provide a unique forum for like-minded people to discuss on the latest offerings of geospatial technologies and how it contributes for social, economic and political development of Africa.
