heritage mapping: Fiji in 3D model

There was a project held in 2005 in Fiji that tried to support community based biodiversity conservation as the basis for ensuring food security and sustainable

There were different phases where the GI and GIS was involved. Starting with the beginning phase where the digital elevation map was prepared and later, the 3D completed blank 1:10000 horizontal and 1:6666 vertical scale model was done. On this model locals where asked to mark the heritage objects, to pin them, to color, to label. And later on the model was transferred to a map.

Looks really interesting and great collaborative work.
Have a look at the Report on the Participatory 3D Modelling &
Participatory GIS Exercise held on 4-13 April 2005 on Ovalau Island, Fiji
