Our Services

Web Mapping

We have a mobile and web application development unit with competences in developing cutting-edge GIS solutions.


We execute and supervise projects with GPS mapping of point features such as (Office locations, and service facilities etc) and mapping of line features (road and route mapping) and polygon features (farm mapping, property mapping)

Remote Sensing

We provide services such as acquisition or procurement of Optical and RADAR images for purchase for individuals and corporate use


We have a series of well structured training programs available on request to institutions interested in having their staff trained to acquire skills in GIS and Remote sensing in Ghana and the West African sub-region at large.

The United Nations University Institute for Natural Resources in Africa (UNU-INRA), in collaboration with the Center for Remote Sensing and Geographic Information Services (CERSGIS), is organizing a three-day course on the use of Earth Observation (EO) and how it can contribute to the attainment of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The course is designed for students, staff of public institutions and private sector players.

Date: 12th – 14th November, 2019
Venue: UNU-INRA, 2nd Floor, International House, University of Ghana Campus

Course content
The course will have two modules:
Module 1: This module will provide participants with the theoretical background to EO systems, data and analysis procedures. Differences in orbital systems, data acquisition modes, data types, characteristics (e.g. resolution) and format will be addressed.
Module 2: This module will provide examples of practical application of EO data in agricultural management. It will draw on the experience participants would have acquired from module 1.

About Us

The Centre for Remote Sensing and Geographic Information Services started as a Remote Sensing Application Laboratory in 1990 at the Department of Geography and Resource Development, University of Ghana, Legon. The Remote Sensing Application Unit developed its staff capacity to provide contractual Remote Sensing and GIS services to its clients. In 2000, the status of the Remote Sensing Application Unit changed to Centre for Remote Sensing and Geographic Information Services (CERSGIS). The change of name meant change of strategic focus from a funded establishment to a self-sustaining Non-profit Organization that focused on providing geographic information and remote sensing services for sustainable development planning and management of resources..
