Land Cover Participatory Map of Mamberamo Bagusa 2015

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.
