About the Small Scale Mining portal

The artisanal mining monitoring service in Ghana is a partnership between NASA AST team, AGRHYMET/SERVIR-WA, A Rocha and CERSGIS to utilize earth observation data to map artisanal mining areas and ultimately develop user - defined Geographic Information products to support and guide the strategies and policy formulation in regard to the environment.

The service will provide the necessary spatial data input to decision makers and partners, such as A Rocha Ghana, who will use the information to target areas for remediation and landscape restoration activities."
