In touch - resources related to mapping and PGIS and other participation-related resources (PLA 54)
Reviews of resources related to the theme as well as more general participation-related resources.
Also in the In Touch section of this issue, Susanne Schnuttgen and Nigel Crawhall report on a new UNESCO initiative related to Cultural Mapping. They highlight some of the lessons learnt among Indigenous and First Nations’ Peoples in Canada, New Zealand, the Philippines and Southern Africa as presented at a recent meeting held in Cuba (New Perspectives on Cultural Diversity: The Role of Communities 7th–10th February 2006). Experiences and ethical concerns that emerged rom the Mapping for Change Conference were discussed and contributed to the formulation of UNESCO’s declaration on Cultural Mapping.
