Research Partnership

Community Mappers was hired by researchers at the University of Twente and the Partimap project to generate data to support Nairobi-wide modelling of slums and informal settlements. Technical outputs of this project are available at:

Simple Image Classification

Our mappers used smart phones to classify which side-by-side image in Nairobi was more deprived.

Modeled City-wide Slum Map

Computer modellers are using our classified satellite image data to model "degree of deprivation" citywide.
