I have noticed a couple of examples where this Web site states that a WHS has only 1 location when the UNESCO Web site (correctly) shows them to have more
Bellinzone - has 3
Vizcaino - has 2
More interestingly, there are a number of WHS where UNESCO has them identified as "Single Location" when their maps, documentation or else just plain "common sense" show them to have "Multiple Locations". We had Falun identified already but I noticed a few more by doing a quick run through all the "single location" sites - I could well have missed others! In the case of Falun the difference could be put down to a different interpretation of what constitutes "multiple locations" - though consistency really requires it to be "multiple". Some of the other examples possibly demonstrate the lack of clarity about what actually did get inscribed especially in the early years of the scheme or else some "problem" relating to the site and its management!
I suggest a new "Connection". That would enable us to display (as now) the "official" UNESCO numbers of locations in the "count" whilst highlighting via the "Connection" those WHS which have more locations than the official statement - "Single Location" WHS with multiple locations
WHS which are shown on the UNESCO Web site as being single locations with no separate Serial IDs but whose map and/or description clearly shows that they contain multiple (i.e 2 or more) geographically separated locationsFalun
-3 locations - Falun and Ostera-bergsgarden, Hosjo and Sundbornsan Valley, Knivaĺn ValleyCarlsbad Caverns
- 2 locations- Main Cavern area, Rattlesnake SpringsCusco
- 4 locations - Town centre based on the Zocalo, La Almudena Church, Belen Church and Sq, Santiago Church and SqTyre
- No of locations not clear. The "Reactive Monitoring Mission" of 2012 had considerable difficulty in establishing boundaries for the property using documentation provided from the time of inscription onwards. The UNESCO Web site description makes it clear however that there are at least 2 separate inscribed areas "In the modern town of Soűr, the property consists of two distinct sites: the one of the town, on the headland, and the one of the Necropolis of El Bass, on the continent." Kii Mountains
. No of locations not clear (the UNESCO documentation lacks the detailed map in App 1c!!) but certainly more than 1 - "In all, the nominated site covers 495.3 ha. This is made up of the three main sites, which cover 44.8, 94.2, and 63.1 ha respectively, and 307.6 km of pilgrimage routes, which together cover 293.2 ha. The pilgrim routes nominated are not all contiguous as there are sections excluded where they have been influenced by modern development. All parts of the nominated site are protected by a buffer zone, which varies in extent from element to element – some of the routes only being protected by a very narrow zone. The whole buffer zone covers 11,370ha." (AB eval) See this map which presumably shows in light colours the non-inscribed portions of the routes which must therefore create separate inscribed sections - http://www.sekaiisan-wakayama.jp/english/sisan_index.htmAsante Traditional Buildings
. No of locations not clear. We know that between 10 and 13 buildings were inscribed. Whilst some may be "adjacent" to and therefore potentially in the same "location" as another, others are widely scattered around or many kms from Kumasi and therefore must be separate "locations"
