This GeoDataPack of Makhuduthamaga Municipality is ideal for use within a geographical information system (GIS) to use for infrastructure planning (e.g. pipelines, roads, reservoirs), disaster management (e.g. floods) and environmental impact assessments.  Makhuduthamaga is located in the Limpopo Province of South Africa and is mainly a rural area.  Settlements include Ga-masemola, Ga-mampana, Ga-phahla, Sekwati, Manganeng, Sekhukune, Jane Furse, Glen Cowie and Nebo.

GeoSmart is currently creating similar GeoDataPacks for all municipal areas in South Africa (please enquire for others).

GeoDataPacks are collections of geospatial datasets tailored for improving decision-making and solving geographical problems.  GeoSmart’s GeoDataPacks were collated from various sources and formatted so that they can be used in various software packages, including Google Earth, QGIS, and ArcGIS.  The datasets can also be viewed as digital maps.
