dc.description.abstractWhat has been attempted in this paper is to create a framework within which the prospects and potentials of the geoinformation industry could be discussed. An overview has been provided of the issues and challenges that the geoinformation industry in Africa is facing and what are the possible solutions. It is clear that international geoinformation initiatives, the development of National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI) and the development of institutional and individual capacity must be part of the solution. However, this must happen within an appropriate framework and be properly coordinated. Research conducted in one of the regional economic communities in Africa has shown the wealth of geoinformation that already exists. What the paper should ultimately tell the reader is that although the geoinformation industry is small and has its problems, a platform has been established to begin to look at the prospects for its future development and the maximizing of its potential.en
