Obscape supplies affordable high quality systems for easy environmental and industrial observations. We develop and manufacture the instrumentation and the telemetry system for communication inhouse. Purchase of any Obscape device includes free use of a secure and powerful database which can be visually accessed from any electronic internet based device. All our systems have been developed in-house and are characterised by their reliability, ease-of-use and cost-effectiveness. Observation data are collected into the Obscape Data Portal. Whether you are measuring with a single device or with an extensive multi-sensor setup, our systems will support you in managing your primary process.
Our mission is to make affordable high quality, environment observations easy.
Obscape have been Developing, manufacturing and supplying real-time systems for environmental observations for over a decade.
Over a decade of environmental observations
The company formed as a result of a 5-year collaboration between South Africa-based Enviromap and Netherlands-based H-Max – both of which have extensive experience in marine and coastal monitoring. Faced with the high costs and limitations of conventional measurement equipment, the company’s founders were inspired to experiment with developing their own sensors and devices. They decided to engage in the development of the WaveDroid, a real-time wave measurement buoy. Design, production and implementation commenced in 2016, and a number of interesting applications were soon identified. The WaveDroid has since evolved through several development iterations and is now considered a highly accurate and reliable tool by prestigious customers.
Sticking to the principle of easy-to-use and reliable real-time equipment, more observation systems were developed. The expanded product range includes weather, rain, water level measurement and camera devices. The growth of the business led to the formal establishment of Obscape in 2019. The company is run from offices in Durban (hardware & production) and Delft (software & logistics).
