Using geospatial technologies to better understand the changing environment
Illegal gold mining in the Amazon
Twenty years of gold mining in the Peruvian Amazon has negatively affected local communities and ecosystems. The destructive mines leave behind a barren, mercury-polluted landscape. Using high-resolution satellite imagery, geospatial data, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, organizations can detect, monitor and assess deforestation caused by illegal gold mining in the Madre de Dios region of Peru.
