"The time spent in the office and in Washington, DC has allowed me to interact with different people, professionals and others, who had diverse experiences in historic preservation work as well as documentation work."
Fatima Al-Nammari worked primarily in the Washington, DC office finalizing documentation drawings of buildings and landscapes related to New Jersey's cranberrry cultivation industry. While most of the data had been previously collected using GPS and GIS software, Fatima did make a short trip to the small village of Whitesbog to obtain more data. Back in the office, she used ArcMap, AutoCad, and Photoshop to compile and deliver the final documents required for the project.
In Washington, Fatima was able to tour many of the capitol city's historic sites and monuments, on many occasions with other US/ICOMOS International Interns who were working with the National Park Service.
