pic_048_pafid_04map_loc_cadc_nuevaThis 1:5000-scale 3D model, produced with the assistance of the Philippine Association for Inter-Cultural Development (PAFID), was completed in year 1999 in Palayan City, Nueva Ecija, Philippines. It covers and area of 70 km2 and includes the area claimed as ancestral land by the Igorot Peoples of this location.

The model has been instrumental in gathering evidence supporting ownership of the ancestral domain, delineating boundaries, filing the CADC/CADT applications and preparing the Ancestral Domain Management Plan required by the law.
