South african rivers dataset

Admire Nyakudya
Hi All

I am looking for any free public dataset that has got river names in
either  English or Afrikaans.

The NGI 1in50k rivers have features labeled in all languages  i.e

* THOMAS RIVER
  * CALEDON RIVER
  * KWAKHELEKETHE STREAM

Does such a dataset exists ?.

Regards

Admire

Re: South african rivers dataset

Kate Snaddon
The NFEPA rivers layer on BGIS (www.bgis.sanbi.org) has names.  It's basically a 1:500K layer, though, so not fine scale.  There will be a new version coming out in the next few months, but at a similar scale.

Hi Admire, 

Try WRC, they are an excellent source of water courses in SA.

Dear Kate, 

WRC have matched down to a 1:50k scale and I've never been disappointed. Used them for all river names sources in the past.  Worth trying them out?

Kind Regards,
Janile Vincent

Hi
Please contact me tomorrow on [hidden email].  021 658 4408 - I might be able to help a little.

The NGI Geographical names dataset will have a far better name component than the embedded attribute in the river vector set.  

I am just not too sure if you are asking if a dataset exists that has a translated name into English or Afrikaans even if the approved name is in another language? ...

Telecommunications (national): Cell Phone, Broad Band, Fibre, 4G, 5G coverage

Willem Badenhorst
Dear colleagues

Does anybody know where I can get hold of the above data?  The cell phone and fibre companies does have coverage maps on their websites, but it does not transfer well into GIS unless there is a WMS.

Any advice would be welcome.

Kind regards,
Willem

Re: Telecommunications (national): Cell Phone, Broad Band, Fibre, 4G, 5G coverage

Nkahloleng Mokwele [ MTN South Africa ]

Y’ello Willem,

 

Telco’s and infrastructure providers generally keep info of physical assets confidential- usually due to competitive reasons and of late because of increased incidents of theft (battery packs, diesel, power generators, copper and fibre cables) and general vandalism.

 

Send me a direct mail so I can better understand your requirements and we can see if a solution can’t be worked out.

 

Thanks.

 

Warm regards,

Nkahloleng Mokwele
