Participatory 3D Modelling used in the context of the Mountain Agrarian System Program, Bac Kan Province, Vietnam

pic_128_vnm_sam2pic_127_vnm_sam11:3,000-scale 3D model of Phieng Lieng village, Cho Don District, Bac Kan Province, Vietnam . The model representing a total area of approx. 36 sq. km, has been used in 2001 for conducting a participatory diagnosis on spatial management of livestock systems.

Models produced in the framework of the The Mountain Agrarian System Program, Bac Kan Province, Vietnam. The Project is implemented by the Vietnam Agricultural Science Institute (VASI) in partnership with the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI, Philippines), Institut de Recherche pour le Développement (IRD, France), and Centre de Coopération Internationale en Recherche Agronomique pour le Développement (CIRAD, France).
