Abstract:

Comité National Télédétection (CNT) is a network of spatial images end-users in Madagascar. Objectives are capacity building, to share information and to encourage emergence of new projects using remote sensing data. CNT was operational since 2009 and this is our first return of experiences.

CNT is an initiative of searchers from University of Antananarivo and it gathers about forty institutions including public administration, universities, private companies and NGOs.

It allows us to transmit to member scientific information about satellites and remote sensing data, to get information from members about their situation so we could use this information for capacity building and negotiation with foreign partners.

CNT has now its own website where we put all information to member and share image data to all users.

But we also meet some problems concerning mainly the legal status of CNT.
