Detailed Description

Ngesa Naphtally Marvin

Recently, in Lake Victoria, Africa, water hyacinth has become a major invasive plant species and the plant has negatively affected local ecosystems. The weeds create excellent breeding sites for mosquitoes and other insects, which results in an increase of diseases such as skin rash, cough, malaria, encephalitis, gastro-intestinal disorders, and bilharzia (schistosomiasis). Despite several efforts, water hyacinth in Lake Victoria continues to expand. This project uses drone technology to monitor the source of water hyacinth, how it spreads, and track its movement in the lake. The data can assist organizations to anticipate its growth and work to stop it.
