Draw and Make

WP3 uses WWU’s extensive experiences to use sketchmaps as modality for creating and interacting with land tenure information in the context of land administration systems. Sketch maps are a suitable tool as conventional scientific cartographic and geospatial knowledge is usually limited in the case areas. This WP differs from previous work on sketchmapping, undertaken by WWU (i.e. SketchMapia), as:

  1. the type of map differs (rural land tenure maps instead of urban survey maps) which influences relevant cognitive aspects,
  2. the specific application of exploring land tenures specific spatial concepts and terminology, and
  3. capturing semantic information (labels and annotation) is important in this context, whilst previous work (i.e. SketchMapia) only focused on purely spatial information.
