Village volunteers created participatory maps of land cover for their villages, identifying the different land covers and their vegetation types. After the first draft of the map, a ground check was necessary to geo-reference the main features (rivers, villages, roads, etc.,). The maps were digitized using GIS software and verified by the villagers. This map displays the Papuan villagers' ecologically-based classifications of land cover in their territory.
