RAMANI, named after the Swahili word for ‘Map’, is the first spin-off of the University of Twente’s Faculty of Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation. RAMANI has developed a toolbox for software developers to be able to quickly get results by providing a series of APIs providing advanced functionality to mobile Apps such as AI (artificial intelligence), Crowdsourcing, Offline maps and routing, etc.. Ujuizi Laboratories has utilised the RAMANI APIs for its award-winning crowdsourcing app called “CHEETAH”, which fights food loss in West Africa.
The group also has extensive experience in tailoring the user interfaces of software applications to (semi) illiterate audiences based on its experiences in developing end-to-end solutions in other BoP markets, or as enhanced data-streams for downstream service providers to allow others to build added-value services on top of Copernicus through a RESTful API. The Maps-API connects to a rich Streaming Data Library (SDL), hosted by RAMANI on behalf of ESA, allowing developers to tap into Geo-spatial data (gridded and vector) as well as location-based information from the weather forecast services operated by RAMANI. A full cloud-based IT hardware infrastructure is maintained by RAMANI that provides scalability through advanced content-delivery cloud services. As “Ujuizi Laboratories”, RAMANI is a subsidiary of Ujuizi Holding B.V.. Their combined aim is to accelerate mobile technology in developed and BoP (Bottom of Pyramid) markets.
