Case study "Lahore Fort, Pakistan"

Dr Pamela Rogers,  cultural heritage conservation and management expert from the National College of Arts Lahore, presented a case study on the Master Plan established for Lahore Fort and the use of cultural mapping for implementing the objectives of the Master Plan through describing the planning process for the management of significancen, risk and vulnerability.  The Lahore Fort site was inscripted to UNESCO's World Heritage List in 1981. 

Participants performed an on-site analysis of Lahore Fort and evaluated the significance, risk and vulnerability of a portion of the site. By completing layers in a manual GIS, and using a pen and paper methodology, participants developed aa comprehensive understanding of how a risk/signficance assessment can be used to monitor and evaluate a cultural heritage site.
