2013 Program

  • Chilanga, Zambia

  • I have been working with National Heritage Conservation Commission on several GIS projects as an intern on voluntary basis. The main focus of the National Heritage Conservation Commission is to manage and conserve Zambia’s immovable cultural and natural heritage in posterity for public enjoyment and education. The GIS projects I work on are identified and funded by the institution and its partners. One such project is the retrospective inventory of the Victoria Falls World Heritage Site Boundary Mapping requested by the World Heritage Centre UNESCO Headquarters in Paris France.  This was a mapping exercise for the world heritage site funded by National Heritage Conservation Commission. GIS experts from SCGIS Zambia Chapter helped in developing the procedures and defining the tasks of GIS in the project apart from mentorship.
