Location- The relative location of South Africa is in Southern Africa. And the Latitude of South Africa is 29 S and the the Longitude is 24 E.











Human- Environment Interaction-

There are two major types of pollution in South Africa are air and marine pollution. More than 90% of South Africa's electricity is generated from the combustion of coal that contains approximately 1.2% sulfur and up to 45% in ash. Coal combustion can lead to particulate matter in the air,as well as contribute to acid rain.  To industries pollution, low level atmospheric pollution often resultsfrom coal combustion in stoves, as well as coal- heated boilers that are found in hospitals and factories. South Africa also must concern itself with marine pollution. South Africa is especially vulnerable to oil spills due to the high volume of oil transported around the country's coast by ship from the Middle East to Europeand the Americas. The South African's Department of Transport and The Department of Environmental Affairs and Tourism cooperate to ensure both prevention of oil spills and clean- up in the event of accidents. measures supported by the Department of Transport includethe maintenance of at least a 

12 mile  distance from South Africa coast, prosecution of ship owners if any is discharged from their ships, control of aircraft patrols over shipping lanes, and contingency plans for any oil spills that occur.







In South Africa they have a lot of different ways to get around. Lets take minibus-taxis for example. Minibus- taxis provides 65% of the 2,5 billion annual passenger trips in urban areas and a high percentage of rural and intercity transport. More then 480 taxi associations are operating throughout the country. Another way for transportation in South Africa are Motor Cars. On February 28, 1998 there were some 655 million registered motor vehicles in South Africa, more than 3,8 million of which were motor cars.

Andriss, much of your HEI section appears to be copied and pasted. You are also missing the Regions theme. I was looking for 4 specific places, not just a map for the Places theme. A map is great, but supporting information is needed.
