Please note that we are giving finishing touches to our map. 

Click on the image to navigate through the map of land and farm structures in South Africa.

How to use the map:

  • Zoom in the region that you are interested in.
  • The borders of the farms/land parcels will appear.
  • Select the parcel you are interested in and see the corresponding data appear in the right column.
  • Change the filter to select a different time (1990-2013), or a different type of image (satellite).
  • If the map doesn’t load, please try loading the page in a different browser. We recommend Chrome 40+, Edge, IE 11, Opera 28+.


Please note that we will roll out many more features as the data processing proceeds. Check this page for updates!
Let us know which features you would like to see in the map by using the link below. Do not forget to join the Land Community to help informed decision-making on land in South Africa.
