The Nigerian spatial and mapping industry is grossly under represented online. It is getting difficult to feel the pulse of the Nigerian geospatial industry using an online research. Nigerian students contribute immensely to global internet traffic. They can also be assisted to contribute positively to Nigerian online footprint by providing reviews, news, content, etc about Nigerian mapping and GIS industry.

The Office of the Surveyor General of the Federation ( http://www.osgof.gov.ng/ ) -Nigeria's mapping agency in collaboration with Spatial Technologies Ltd -Nigeria's foremost mapping and GIS solution provider is inviting students in Nigerian tertiary institutions studying Land Surveying, and Geographic Information (GI) related courses to enter into a blogging competition codenamed Project Zuma.

Project Zuma -an online bloggging competition named after the popular and legendary Zuma rock in Niger State is a strategic online campaign designed to improve and strengthen the online information footprint for Nigerian Geospatial and brand awareness

Professor Peter Nwilo -the newly appointed Surveyor General Of the Federation said, "Project Zuma is expected to provide the platform to improve the online search profile of Nigerian Geospatial industry regarding news, information, who is doing what and what is happening where within the industry. The project is also expected to improve the creativeness and innovations of our students. This we believe would transform Nigerian Geospatial industry from being a sluggish, uninspired industry to a vibrant, innovative and technology savvy mapping industry providing a wealth of information about the emerging industry to the internet community in a consistent and efficient "

According to Ireti Ajala -the CEO of Spatial Technologies Ltd, "The idea behind project Zuma is to engage young Nigerians studying Land surveying and other geospatial related courses across Nigerian tertiary institutions constructively and assist them to channel their intellectual capacity, creativity and vibrancy towards an agenda of national development and other worthy projects instead of wasting precious time and money on social network gossips via Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo, etc"

The contract included the supply of over 50,000 points of interest with several classes covering Lagos metropolis, Lagos street map data, and administrative boundaries. The contract allows Getchee to add proprietary intelligence to the data to meet its unique requirements

"The value of STL's mapping capabilities continues to increase in the marketplace across Nigeria and Africa as more public and private sector organizations and market research solution providers embrace the power of our intelligent map data powering Nigerian retail location analytics" said Ireti Ajala, STL’s CEO. "STL's unique mapping technology enables our customers to address the area of interest that they want to map with pinpoint accuracy. We are so proud to have collected and delivered intelligent location datasets to Getchee  so that this solution provider can convert into a unified solution that derives the data-driven answers they require to power their entry into Nigerian market."

Lack of intelligent location data to underpin consistent decision making process and competitive intelligence on Nigeria retail market including the issue of lack of adequate infrastructure continue to plague Nigerian retail industry. This had definitely affected the the use of location analyses in several strata of Nigerian retail industry
However this agreement strategically empowers Getchee to enter Nigerian emerging market and provides world class retail analytical services for Nigerian banks, and other retail companies.

Hiroshi Tomita, Getchee’s Business Analyst said on Getchee's official blog page , “Available financial, geospatial, and socio-demographic data is commonly outdated or limited in most emerging markets like Nigeria. To overcome this challenge, getchee started by procuring geospatial base layers and POI from a local vendor known as Spatial Technologies Ltd., “Nigeria’s foremost mapping and GIS solution provider”. We then improved the POI quality and usefulness by incorporating proprietary analytics and other getchee-obtained datasets. With these optimized datasets, getchee identified and described important and granular characteristics of Lagos that our clients in Nigeria could then use to improve sales performance throughout their networks”
