Hillary Mumbere Geospatial Engineer

Mumbere Hillary leads ADP Technology’s Geospatial Department, providing clients with numerous superior GIS solution strategies, including project design, quality control, modeling, layout and production. He excels at translating technical data into usable information for the decision-making process and integrating GIS into practical applications.His technical expertise includes spatial analysis, imagery analysis, software design, database creation, information management for large projects, cartographic design, high quality map production, application development, designing and implementing training plans.He is also working to finish his Masters in Information Systems at Uganda Martyrs University.

Geospatial engineers are the most recent additions to the ADP family. They use new and developing technologies such as GPS, satellite imagery, laser mapping and fast computing to create complex layers of interconnected geographic information. Today we can measure position very accurately. We can make maps and look down on the world from airborne and satellite platforms, and visualise the natural and built environment in 3D. Geospatial information constantly reveals new insights about our world and our place in it.

Engineer Mumbere Hillary heads this department at ADP Technologies

As an Geospatial Engineer at  ADP Hillary gets to do the following Roles;

  • Remote Sensing: imagery and data collected from space- or airborne camera and sensor platforms. Some commercial satellite image providers now offer images showing details of one-meter or smaller, making these images appropriate for monitoring humanitarian needs and human rights abuses.
  • Geographic Information Systems (GIS): a suite of software tools for mapping and analyzing data which is georeferenced (assigned a specific location on the surface of the Earth, otherwise known as geospatial data). GIS can be used to detect geographic patterns in other data, such as disease clusters resulting from toxins, sub-optimal water access, etc.
  • Internet Mapping Technologies: software programs like Google Earth and web features like Microsoft Virtual Earth are changing the way geospatial data is viewed and shared. The developments in user interface are also making such technologies available to a wider audience whereas traditional GIS has been reserved for specialists and those who invest time in learning complex software programs.
