6 - World Heritage Sites and the Extractive Industries

One of my most interesting and challenging projects was the project dealing with the impact of mining on World Heritage Sites in Africa. It was a desktop study but finding information on mining development was not easy to obtain. However the use of GIS proved to be indispensable as well as the use of Google for 3d modelling. Please see below gallery of this study. Do not hesitate to contact me if you would like to receive the powerpoint version of this work. Contact
