An exceptional  combination

Hester Badenhorst

You could say Hester made her own luck – instead of going into the expected world of Townplanning after completing her degree at the University of Pretoria, she landed her first job as a Spatial Analyst and immediately embraced the GIS environment which stimulates both the analytic left and creative right parts of the brain.

Willem Badenhorst

Willem stumbled into a GIS career as a urban and regional planner doing landuse-transport related research at the CSIR.  After 10 years in the research community he started MandalaGIS. Still a planner at heart, he always applies geo-design from an integrated, multi-sectoral perspective. Willem really likes a good map with a good story.

“Maps are like campfires — everyone gathers around them, because they allow people to understand complex issues at a glance, and find agreement about how to help the land.”
