Find the description of all the projects of the GeoRiskA team on the AfricaMuseum website.
GeoRiskA is currently leading several research and scientific cooperation projects. Below, a focus is provided for four of them, along with a brief description of the others, with a link to their dedicated website when available.
GeoRiskA has carried out several projects over the past 10 years. The main ones are presented here.
GeoRiskA is currently in charge of two major collections which concern Africa: a map library referring more than 25.000 documents whose many are rare if not unique, and a collection of more than 300.000 aerial photographs covering DRC, Rwanda, and Burundi acquired between 1947 and 1974. The metadata of a large part of these collections are available in the on-line RMCA geocatalogue.
A database on natural hazards and associated disasters occurring in the Kivu region since December 2019 is also the basis for the development of a web-GIS accessible below.
