Overview

AfriGrid brings location based services to consumers by tying their homes or properties unique identifiers (such as water metre number electricity metre number plot number etc) to their latitude and longitude coordinates (GPS coordinates). In that way we are able to bring emergency services (ambulance fire & rescue) delivery services and cabs as well as other location based services to areas with no (clearly defined) street addresses.rnrnWe have created a system that enables us to locate a house property establishment or physical structure by simply typing in the electricity meter number of that particular property. From our database we extract the GPS coordinates matching the provided identifier of the house or property. We then use these GPS coordinates to create an interactive Google Map showing the location of the house or property.
