MANUAL ON PARTICIPATORY 3-DIMENSIONAL MODELING FOR
NATURAL RESOURCE MANAGEMENT
Essentials of Protected Area Management in the Philippines (2000)
by Giacomo Rambaldi and Jasmine Callosa
The manual is intended to assist Participatory Learning and Action practitioners, non-governmental and other civil organizations, society or scientific institutions and others who would find "community-based 3-D modeling" a powerful tool enabling local stakeholders to express their views and assert their rights.
The manual's content and format are designed for practitioners who would like to plan and facilitate the preparation of 3-D models through a community-based process and for those wanting to bring the potentials of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) at grassroots level. The P3-DM process and its output (the scaled relief model) are the foundations upon which participatory GIS can release its full potential.
