My name is Denton Joachim. I am from Stellenbosch in Cape Town and have been working at Peace Parks Foundation since 2011. I am a Senior GIS Technician and have focused mainly on the SMART (Spatial Monitoring And Reporting Tool) software side of things since Peace Parks become a member of the partnership in 2014.
This was because we needed standardised data collection across of trans-frontier conservation area landscapes. I have been heading up the User Council for the past three years in the SMART Partnership, which helps users across the world to assist in the further development of the software for a variety of conservation area management techniques.
