Enhanced Earth Observation Through Flying Sensors
HiView deploys a range of platforms on which various sensors (both in the visible and non-visible parts of the spectrum) can be mounted. Raw data is converted to information using various state-of-the-art software packages. Information is transferred to knowledge by our highly qualified scientific staff.
Our clients include professionals ranging from the science community, decision makers, natural resources managers, and farmers. We deliver our services world-wide with a particular focus on Europe, Asia and Africa. Typical examples of clients are: universities, research centers, farmers, NGOs, World Bank, governments, river basin organizations and water boards.

In early July, Martijn de Klerk, flying sensor expert at FutureWater, and Jan van Til, operational manager at HiView, gave a one-week training at Strathmore University in Nairobi, Kenya on the use of drones for agriculture. The course was part of the farm extension service ‘MapYourCrop’ developed by FutureWater, as part of the TWIGA project, with partners FutureWater, Hydrologic, and UFZ Helmholtz.

On 17 June Jan van Til from HiView accompanied his colleagues from ThirdEye at a presentation day for potential clients. On this day, which was partly held in a venue in Chimoio and partly in a field near Chibata, 12 participants had the chance to meet with the team and get informed about all applications that are possible with Flying Sensors (drones), specifically in the agriculture sector.
The project ‘A Practical Farmers Toolkit – Geodata for climate smart agriculture in Egypt’ has successfully finished in February 2022. An exciting video was made, which gives a short overview of this agricultural project.
