The CoastGIS Conference series began with what was planned as a ‘one off’ conference held at University College Cork, Ireland, in 1995. The goal then – and now – was to focus on how information technologies, including Geographic Information Systems (GIS), are used in coastal zone management, science and research.

SumbandilaSat beyond repair

South Africa’s second satellite, SumbandilaSat, is no longer fulfilling its main purpose due to technical problems and is essentially beyond repair, its maker SunSpace says. Ron Olivier, head of Business Development at SunSpace, told defenceWeb that although contact can still be made with the satellite, it cannot capture images and is thus “not fulfilling its main purpose”. He said that chances of repairing the satellite are virtually zero and that SunSpace has moved on to other projects.
