    About This Platform

    The Extractive Industries Map is an online, publicly-accessible, interactive mapping application focused on the extractive industries of oil, gas and mining. With this tool, users can map the locations of mineral, oil and gas deposits, active mines, oil and gas wells, socioeconomic indicators such as unemployment and malnutrition rates, government revenues etc. The goal is to create a tool that advocates and policy-makers can use to understand governance issues in the extractive industries and advocate for solutions.

    The platform was piloted in Ghana and is designed to scale up easily to accommodate datasets as the demand arises. By allowing users to create their own maps of this information, the relationships between extractive activities, socioeconomic and other governance-related data can be better explored and understood than through the sole use of tables and text, and provides a central space through which a variety of information can be accessed.
