Participatory 3D Model of the Danajon Bank, Bohol, Philippines
This 1:10,000 scale 3D model with 2X vertical exaggeration, was completed in July 2006. It depicts the vast Danajon Bank in Bohol, Philippines. The Danajon Bank is a double barrier reef in the Philippines. One of only six double barrier reefs in the world, Danajon Bank runs for 156 km in the Central Visayas, around the following islands: Bohol, Cebu, and Leyte.
The model covers a total area of 480 km2. It was manufactured by local stakeholders in the framework of the Fisheries Improved for Sustainable Harvest (FISH) Project a (2003-2010) conservation initiative funded by USAID which focused on small-scale fisheries and coastal resource management.
The P3DM process was initiated as part of the information and education campaign and to help the Talibon local government develop and establish a Fisheries and Coastal Resource Management Interpretive Center.
Depicted data reflect the cognitive maps of local governments, municipal agricultural officers, village chiefs, national and provincial government agencies, municipal planning and development officers.
