Participatory Avenues - Integrated Approaches to Participatory Development (IAPAD)
This paragraph offers a sample of what you'll find on this web site: "P3DM is the method that facilitates the visualization of mainly tacit (spatial) knowledge, and increases through an intensive learning process the amount of knowledge we are fully aware of. This enhances our capacities to analyze, communicate and interact on specific issues, which got much clearer in our mind.
Cognitive maps (also known as mental maps) are internal representations of the world and its spatial properties stored in memory. They frequently represent portions of our tacit and explicit knowledge and are visualized with the use of sketch maps, transect diagrams, scale maps, drawings and physical or virtual 3-dimensional models.

Different from other visualizing tools (i.e. sketch mapping) characterized by variable levels of accuracy, 3-D modeling offers the opportunity to produce relatively precise geo-referenced and scaled qualitative and quantitative data, adding substantial value and communication power to indigenous technical knowledge (ITK)."
